How is standardization work organised?

Standardization work in Finland is carried out in standardization groups open to everyone. Groups follow and participate in the development of European and global standards on their field.

What is The Finnish Standards Association?

SFS is the central standardization organisation in Finland. Our goal is to ensure that Finnish organisations, both public and private, have an opportunity to have their say on the contents of standards, the common rules of the market.
