  • The constitution of a Technical Committee consists of the Nominating Organisations that represent various interest groups across the industries. These Nominating Organisations are currently participating in Standards Australia’s Standards Development activity. The Nominating Organisation appoints a representative to represent the views of that organisation’s interest group during the development of a Standard.
