Helping Developing Economies

Social Responsibility

It is estimated that 2.7 billion people, nearly half the world's population, exist on less than $2 a day, with about 1 billion living on less than $1 a day.  While the nations of the world collectively produce enough food to feed every person on Earth, the latest figures reveal that more than 850 million people do not have enough food to lead healthy, active lives.

Meanwhile, diseases of the developing world continue to exact a terrible toll: malaria, for example, is estimated to kill one African child every 30 seconds.

StanCert’s involvement in developing countries is motivated by eye-opening facts such as these.  Because we possess expertise that is capable of making a difference, we are compelled to work with responsible organisations to impact local communities and the world at large.

 

How StanCert Can Assist Developing Countries

Developing countries often struggle to access the benefits of standardisation and encounter barriers to engaging effectively in trade.  This, along with other influences, may contribute to a lower quality of life for their citizens.  StanCert assists these countries overcome some of their trade constraints to maximise opportunities to prosper and enhance the wellbeing of their citizens.

An effective regulatory, standards and compliance infrastructure has many benefits and StanCert helps developing countries to identify and achieve their objectives through a collaborative approach and its innovative Standards Capacity Building Strategic Framework (SCBSF).

 

Why Choose StanCert

We have developed standards in some of the most high profile, commercially sensitive and political environments.  For example, infant and nursery products, electrical safety, biometrics, risk management, corporate governance and leading edge information technology applications, to name but a few.  In total the StanCert team have been responsible for the production of in excess of 1000 national and many international standards that in many cases underlie essential regulatory systems.  We have collaborated with many international standards bodies and StanCert has particular expertise in the Asia-Pacific region.

StanCert is also on the cutting edge of improving regulatory environments in Australia and overseas.

To support our international work we have access to a network of associates that spans the globe and caters for most industry sectors. We are also networked to regulators, standards bodies and industry associations.
