Under the National Quantum Technologies Programme (NQTP), one of the key areas of work is described as “Strengthen engagement in international standards and benchmarking”. In support of a wider awareness and engagement from UK industry in the development of new standards, this report explains the background to standards, why they are needed and how they are developed. Previous work of NPL in the development of standards for nanotechnology is presented as a worked, functional example and offered as a methodology for quantum standards development. NPL has worked with partners to deliver a well-attended on-line meeting with high-profile speakers involving well over 130 people from the UK quantum community at which these issues were discussed along with the current situation in the development of quantum standards and building a coordinated UK approach for the future.
