We have just posted a Standards update to the members only Standards Portal . This service provides BGA members an update on technical developments which are currently taking place in gear standards.
Covid-19 has changed how standards meetings are run. Shorter, on-line meetings are now the norm with delegates joining from Europe, USA and Japan and China. This is reducing travel time, costs and environmental impact for participating in these meetings making it easier for everybody to participate.
If you want to learn more about the role BGA members play in standard development or want to get involved, please contact Kirst McGregor at the BGA for assistance.
