What is CSA’s relationship to ISO?
ISO is the International Organization for Standardization. It is a worldwide federation of national standards bodies representing approximately 140 countries. ISO works with member countries to develop standards that will improve design, performance, safety, and other considerations.
ISO addresses standardization in all fields except electrical and electronic engineering, which are the responsibility of the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC), a partner organization with ISO.
On behalf of the Standards Council of Canada (SCC), CSA represents Canada on various ISO committees, such as ISO/TC 176 on Quality Management and ISO/TC 207 on Environmental Management.
