The Standards Council of Canada (SCC) retained The Conference Board of Canada to undertake a study to examine the impact of standardization on the Canadian economy. The study involved a review of the standards-oriented economics literature, an empirical analysis of the impact of the collection of standards on Canadian labour productivity, a series of interviews with Canadian leaders, and two case studies on the benefits of selected aspects of standardization.
