Standards Committees

Committees: The meeting place for volunteers

The Canadian General Standards Board (CGSB) committees are groups of experts representing users, producers, industry, general interests, various levels of government and regulatory groups who volunteer their time and expertise to helping us develop and implement our products and services.

Volunteers bring their expertise to the CGSB:

  • to develop standards through Technical Standards Committees
  • to develop certification and qualification programs through Technical Advisory Committees
  • to continuously review and ensure quality of certification and qualification programs through Review Panels
  • to advise on the development, operation and governance of CGSB registration programs through the Management Systems Committee

More than 3,600 volunteers contribute their expertise and time to the CGSB. Their collaboration ensures that CGSB programs and services are harmonized with the requirements of our clients and of all stakeholder groups.

Volunteers: Benefits of participating

People volunteer for many reasons and in many different ways. Being a committee member provides you with a forum to:

  • exchange valuable technical and professional information with peers,
  • help set technical requirements as a subject specialist,
  • promote the views of the sponsoring organization,
  • make a difference in establishing the parameters that facilitate trade, and
  • network with peers and make new and valuable contacts.

Make a difference: Join our team

Volunteers are the essence of CGSB programs and services. We rely on their expertise and enthusiasm. The CGSB greatly appreciates the efforts of, and time and resources from, our many volunteers, and supports them through training and ongoing communication.
