Standards, innovation and the Australian economy

The report, Standards, innovation and the Australian economy, undertaken by the Canberra based Centre for International Economics studies the impact of standards on the Australian economy. It is part of Standards Australia's submission to the Australian Productivity Commission research study into the relationship between the Australian Government and the Australian standards and accreditation infrastructure. The report investigates both the micro and macro economic impact of standards. Mr John Tucker, Standards Australia CEO, said that the conclusions drawn make a clear case for the benefits of standards to the Australian economy. "This report, for the first time, puts a dollar value on the impact of standards across some of our most important industries and also measures the economy wide benefits." "And the result is clear: standards are helping generate profits and creating jobs in Australia."
