Standards Council

 TitleSPRING Singapore coordinates the national standardisation programme under the guidance of an industry-led national Standards Council, which comprises representatives from the private and public sectors. Singapore Standards are developed on a consensus basis, and are promoted for wide acceptance and adoption by industry and key stakeholders.

The Standards Council advises SPRING on the directions, policies, strategies and priorities for the national standardisation programme. It appoints the following 11 Standards Committees (SC) to lead standards development and implementation in various functional / technical areas :
