International Standardization Council
The International Standardization Council (ISC) has been designated to coordinate all aspects of standardization efforts within CSA. The ISC actively searches mechanisms of inserting CSA content into standards under development, captures and codifies the knowledge gained from CSA past experience, and increases education and awareness with respect to standards. Additionally, ISC provides an avenue for corporate members to participate and influence standardization efforts worldwide represented under the CSA banner.

Due to the highly strategic value of the ISC as well as the sensitivity of work and protection of IP, we encourage participation by individuals with a strong background working with international standardization communities and processes. New membership is then approved by a simple majority vote by the current ISC membership. All members are bounded by the CSA IPR policy. Current membership has representatives from various National Bodies (NBs), including CA, CN, DE, FR, GB, HK, SG, TW, US.
