Glossary: CSA

Canadian Standards development is the foundation of CSA Group. From our initial charter in 1919, we have grown to become the largest standards development organization (SDO) in Canada, with the widest subject area recognition. We also work with other SDOs around the world as a key contributor to international and harmonized standards activities. Our library of more than 3,000 standards and codes address subjects that affect the interests of industry, consumers, regulators and the public at large.
Learn about CSA Group's accreditations, our recognized balanced matrix process, and how many of our codes and standards are used by industries and regulators to help make the world a better, safer, more sustainable place.
Standards Development:  We are accredited in the U.S. and Canada to develop standards in a wide range of subject areas that speak to product safety and performance, process improvement, best practices and safer work environments.
