"Our relationship will enable efficient distribution of ISO and IEC standards. These standards are integral to promoting the safe development and use of technologies critical to our country's competitive edge and social well-being." SCC will continue to evaluate opportunities with standards development organizations and distribution channels to ensure that such standards are widely available in Canada.

"By providing access to these important ISO and IEC documents on our website, we are demonstrating our ongoing commitment and support of international standards development activities," said Bonnie Rose, President, Standards, CSA Group. "We believe Canadian engineers, manufacturers and other stakeholders will benefit greatly from additional access to these valuable publications."
