Higgins, Winton: Standards Australia

Higgins, Winton

Engine of Change: Standards Australia since 1922, Brandl & Schlesinger, Blackheath, NSW, 2005

Traces the history of the national standards body and the contribution of standards to our standard of living and quality of life. Without standards, virtually nothing in our modern economy and society would work, from building to education, transport to telecommunications. Standards Australia’s website, containing some historical material and material about the contribution standards make, is here.
