CANADIAN STANDARDS ASSOCIATION (CSA)
Overview The Canadian Standards Association is an independent, not-for-profit, membership association serving business, industry, government, consumers and other interested parties in Canada and around the world. The Canadian Standards Association has been a leader in standards development since 1919. Accredited by the Standards Council of Canada, CSA is a solutions-oriented organization that develops and maintains more than 3,000 standards, codes and plus products for the safety, design or performance of a wide range of products and services. Various CSA standards are cited in legislation at federal, provincial, state and municipal levels across North America. Many are internationally or regionally harmonized. CSA helps people understand standards through education and information products and services. Each year, thousands of people benefit from the training materials, workshops and seminars offered by the CSA Learning Centre. CSA's standards are the result of the knowledge and expertise of the members who develop them. CSA members come from all walks of life and include scientists, academics, environmentalists and technicians who represent government, industry, labour and consumers. CSA standards are only finalized once the committee reaches a consensus; thereby ensuring that a broad range of viewpoints receive a fair hearing and no single interest group dominates.
