The SNV makes standards possible

As an information hub and independent competence centre, the SNV ensures efficient access to national and international standards. It enables and promotes the development and harmonization of new standards through the active influence of its members as experts in national and international standards committees.

The SNV creates opportunities

With standards, the SNV provides access to markets and technologies: for the economy, for research and for teaching in Switzerland.

The SNV promotes self-regulation

Our main task is standardization. Swiss, European and international standards are developed in direct collaboration with the users. This ensures that the guidelines generate lasting benefits for the economy and society, producers and consumers, and provide security. This standardization process is accessible to all and suitable for all areas of life.

The SNV applies defined processes flexibly and in a customer-oriented manner

Professional standardization is tied to internationally recognized processes. Self-regulation can only serve as a meaningful supplement to legislation if these processes are adhered to. The use of these structures requires skill and experience. At the SNV, we make these skills available to the Swiss economy and society.

The SNV provides support and information

We help you find your way through the jungle of laws, ordinances and directives, ensuring that you have a clear understanding of the global requirements for products and services that are in line with the market.
