Panel Discussion: Standardization for the Benefit of Humanity
What is the role that standardization can play in the next 50 years in the advancement of humankind? Standards and conformity assessment are addressing some of the world's biggest environmental, societal, governance and economic challenges.
To mark our 50th anniversary, we are looking ahead and bringing together a group of industry influencers for a lively panel discussion on how standardization is shaping our society and helping build a better world. The panel discussion will be moderated by SCC’s CEO Chantal Guay and will bring international influencers together to discuss the future of standardization and how it can help humanity.
