Standards Development
The Bureau de normalisation du Québec (BNQ) is accredited by the Standards Council of Canada (SCC) as a standards development body. As such, it is authorized to develop consensual normative documents (Standards) up to the national level and to participate into regional (COPANT, PASC) and international standardization activities. The BNQ holds the secretariat on behalf of SCC for the international ISO technical committee on hydrogen technologies.

Enjoy the benefits of standardization:

  • to demonstrate the willingness of your industry to offer quality products and services;
  • to better position yourself on the provincial, Canadian and international stages
  • to carry out your activities using clearly defined specifications;
  • to enable your clients to reliably compare products and services.
