Industry Standards

As the authority for the design and integration of technology for people to support their lifestyles, CEDIA is committed to producing ANSI accredited standards and recommended practices that ensure the highest levels of professionalism in the industry. CEDIA has teamed up with the CTA to create R10, a joint working group dedicated to this effort. ANSI mandates a balanced and fair standards creation process involving peer review, open and diverse working efforts, and products that result from all of the working group members’ efforts.  CEDIA standards and recommended practices also form a supportive body of knowledge for the formation or CEDIA Education.
