Recorded: Thursday 4th July

Watch the recording of our training session Standardisation in Industry – A Framework for Global Success presented in partnership with UKTIN.

Standardisation impacts almost everything we do, from driving a car to choosing paint, and it is the commercial bedrock of many multi-billion dollar businesses.

In this short complimentary training session, we look at how standardisation drives a range of economic and business outcomes (across many industries), including enabling innovation and competitiveness, fostering compatibility and collaboration, and underpinning economies of scale in production. We explain what standardisation is, which organisations are involved, and how the standards are produced and evolved.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • What are Standards?
  • Exploring the Modern World – Through Standards
  • Benefits of Standardisation
  • Types of Standards
  • Primary Standardisation Organisations
  • A Standards Ecosystems
  • The production of Standards – What and How
  • How Tech Standards Affect Economic Outcome
  • The Impact of Standards on Competition and Innovation
