Maximizing the Gains From Sharing: An Analysis of National and International Best Practices

This research report explores and identifies national and international best practices in the sharing economy. The research builds on a previous CSA Group report on the Sharing Economy, which examined the role of standards in addressing the challenges in a rapidly-changing marketplace.

It also builds upon a workshop hosted by CSA Group and the Standards Council of Canada (SCC) in which an ISO International Workshop Agreement (IWA), IWA 27:2017 – Guiding principles and framework for the sharing economy was developed. This research report addresses national and international challenges that jurisdictions seeking to adopt the 10 IWA principles can encounter, and explores the steps that jurisdictions have taken to overcome them.
