The Common Standard is a series of "standards" by event, age group and gender which are used as a guide to an athlete's performance. They are also used to give an indication of the progression and improvement of the performance of an athlete. There is a system of awarding certificates and badges (badges have to be purchased, whereas certificates are free) according to these standards.
