ISO (International Organization for Standardization) is the world's largest
developer and publisher of International Standards.
ISO is a network of the national standards institutes of 163 countries, one
member per country, with a Central Secretariat in Geneva, Switzerland, that
coordinates the system.
ISO is a non-governmental organization that forms a bridge between the
public and private sectors. On the one hand, many of its member institutes
are part of the governmental structure of their countries, or are mandated
by their government. On the other hand, other members have their roots
uniquely in the private sector, having been set up by national partnerships
of industry associations.
Therefore, ISO enables a consensus to be reached on solutions that meet
both the requirements of business and the broader needs of society.
ISO Standards cover a wide variety of items ranging from medical equipment
to shipbuilding. ISO Standards cover: Mechanical, Machinery, Chemistry,
Coatings, Construction, Metals, Aerospace, Fuels, Energy, Transportation,
Information, Image Technology, Quality, Measurements, Safety, Environment,
Medical, and Consumer Goods.
