The People Who Set the Standard

CSA Group members make our work possible. Together, we’ve created over 3,000 codes and standards, helping make homes, workplaces, and infrastructure safer and more sustainable. By joining CSA Communities, you can start helping our committee members and community representatives change the world for the better.

Why Be a Member?

  1. Have an impact. Standards make the world a better, safer, more sustainable place—but without the contribution and dedication of our members, we couldn’t continue with this important work.
  2. Connect with experts. CSA Group harnesses the expertise of more than 9,000 leading professionals in their field. Working with us provides outstanding opportunities to network and learn from experts.
  3. Build your experience. Standards creation and development puts you at the cutting edge of technical issues in your field. For early-career professionals, Our Young Professionals Member Program offers a great way to get started.
  4. Have your say. The value of any standard increases when a range of people participate in its creation and continued development. Your involvement helps make standards better.


Committee members volunteer their time, knowledge, and experience to our technical committees. They work with our project managers to develop standards that meet the needs of people and business. Technical committees are the forums in which standards are created, refined, and where existing standards are improved and consensus is achieved. Technical subcommittees can also be formed to further support the development or refinement of a standard. Consumer representatives volunteer their time to provide input on standards in development. Their role adds value by ensuring that the consumer perspective is fully represented and reflected in CSA Standards. Whether you’re a consumer or technical expert, the first step towards becoming a member is to sign up for CSA communities. It’s free, and will let you connect with members and explore volunteering opportunities.
