Standardization

Members of the National Building Research Institute are active in Israeli standardization, both as members of expert committees and of the technical and central committees of the Standards Institution of Israel. This activity aims to promote a standards system that is based on scientific foundations, proven engineering tools, and well-established data. Membership on expert committees is granted based on expertise, and the members bring to the committees their personal knowledge, including all of the knowledge accumulated during their research work that has matured into knowledge that may be implemented in standardization. Although members of the technical and central committees represent the Technion, their activity in these committees is based on their expertise in the activity areas of the committees and on their abilities to make state decisions in these areas. Thus, the main interest they represent is ensuring the scientific and proven basis of the standards.
