Education about Standardisation

Standards are being used every day by businesses, manufacturers, public bodies and other organisations. Standards are essential for our society: ISO 9000, CE-marking, construction standards, consumer safety ... Graduates who have acquired an awareness and understanding of standards during their studies are better able to deal with a wide range of situations they might encounter in their professional lives.

Against this background, NBN (Bureau for Standardisation) has launched the 'Education about Standardisation' platform. Its purpose is to convey the importance of standards to university and college students. The platform aims to:

  • make university and college professors aware of the importance of standards for society and business
  • support education about standardisation with: teaching material, easy access to standards for students, business games, a network of speakers on the subject etc.
  • provide students with sufficient knowledge about standards, which they can later apply in their professional careers.
