Website Standards Association

It was born from the need for a uniting body that could set benchmarks for professionalism and quality of workmanship for the web industry. Its most important aim is to inspire its members to produce truly outstanding work that fully utilises the power of the medium.
Through its members, the association's standards provide clients with a guarantee of quality products and services that maximise the power of the Internet and its associated peripherals.
