Standards Australia is pleased to announce that nominations for the 2022 Standards Awards are now open for entry.
The Standards Awards, presented in Standards Australia’s centenary year, are awarded to those who have made significant contributions to standard development and demonstrated outstanding service in enabling Standards Australia to attain its objectives.
Through their exceptional work in developing Australian and international standards, the award winners are people who have contributed to the net benefit of Australia.
The six award categories are:
W.R. HEBBLEWHITE MEDAL
William Rayner Hebblewhite O.B.E. was Standards Australia’s first and longest-serving Chief Executive Officer. This award honors his contribution and foresight in the field. Each year it is awarded to an individual who has made an exceptional and dedicated contribution to standardization—nationally and/or internationally. Winners are recognized for their leadership, technical expertise, and the positive impact their work has made on the industry and community.
MERITORIOUS CONTRIBUTION AWARD—NATIONAL
This award recognizes achievements in national standards development. Winners have made a substantial contribution to problem-solving, research, and innovative thinking and have effectively represented the views of their industry or sector.
MERITORIOUS CONTRIBUTION AWARD—INTERNATIONAL

EMERGING LEADER AWARD
This award acknowledges and rewards emerging leaders. Winners effectively represent their industry or sector in committee debates, play an active role in the committee, or champion relevant projects or initiatives.
This award recognizes those who have championed new and better ways of developing standards or innovation in how standards are delivered to end users, where that innovation meets a clear need and benefit to the community and industry. Winners of this award demonstrate the vision to imagine disruptive change and the drive to deliver it.
OUTSTANDING COMMITTEE AWARD
The award recognizes standards committees that go the extra mile. Through consistent teamwork and commitment, the standards published by these committees make a change for the good in industry and improve quality of life within communities.
