Exhibitions, events, and conventions – ISO new field of technical activity

Standards New Zealand is seeking feedback on a proposal for a new field of technical activity on Exhibitions, events, and conventions. SAC (China) has proposed this activity. 

The scope of the proposal is the following: 

‘Standardization of exhibitions (trade shows, trade fairs), events and conventions (conferences, congresses, meetings, forums, seminars), including terminology, classification, statistics, information system, safety control, service and personnel requirements, and sustainability management.’ 

Standards New Zealand is consulting with stakeholders in this area to determine New Zealand's response. There is more information on our international engagement page. To submit comments including support for or opposition to the proposal, please email isoadmin@standards.govt.nz. Comments received will be used to form a New Zealand position on this proposal. Please provide your comments by Wednesday, 16 November 2016.
