The purpose of this chapter is to provide insight in recent developments in standardization education. The increasing number of initiatives and activities of the last couple of years indicates that there is a momentum for education on standardization. This chapter provides a structured approach for using this momentum to further develop and implement standardization education. The main topics are: needs for standardization education, audiences and learning objectives, contents of an academic curriculum, and available materials for academic teaching. The authors found an enormous gap between manifest and latent needs for standardization education. The lesson to be learnt from some Asian countries is that this gap can be bridged. First, by a strong national policy which may be part of a regional policy. Secondly, by cooperation between government, industry, national standards body, academia and other educational institutions.
