VSS National Platforms

As part of a process of addressing VSS, a number of developing countries, supported by UNFSS, have recently decided to establish national multi-stakeholder VSS platforms with the aim to holistically discuss strategic approaches to VSS. The national platforms are national initiatives that reflect local priorities.


Three countries have recently lunched and set up VSS National Platforms. These are: Brazil, China and India.

Brazil VSS National Platform is hosted by National Institute of Metrology, Quality and Technology (Inmetro)

China VSS National Platform is hosted by China Association for Standardization (CAS) under the Standardization Administration of China (SAC)

India PSS National Platform is hosted by Quality Council of India (QCI)
