Standardization process

Standardization promotes global interaction between business and society.
Around the globe, there is continuous development of new and prospering markets, with hitherto unknown players as well as young and dynamic economies entering the scene. In proportion to this development, there is a growing need for worldwide rules that provide assurance to market players and support cooperation in an age of increasing global interconnection.
Standards meet this need perfectly.

  • Standards make it easier to spread new technologies.
  • Standards promote interoperability of components and equipment, and serve as a means to assess their performance.
  • Thus, standards facilitate business and trade around the world.

Standards have become fundamental building blocks on the road to global consensus among technology, business and society. Anyone involved in standardization stands to gain from it in the long run.
