SFS in brief
The Finnish Standards Association SFS is the central standardization organization that controls and co-ordinates national standardization work in Finland. SFS members include professional, commercial and industrial organizations as well as the state of Finland.
SFS develops, approves and publishes national SFS standards. It also sells standards and communicates information about the standards and standardization to the public. In addition, SFS operates the national WTO Enquiry Point.
The majority of SFS standards are based on international or European standards. SFS prepares standards together with its 12 affiliates called ‘standards writing bodies’.
Founded in 1924, the central organization of SFS currently employs some 50 people.
