Who is ISO?

  • ISO (International Organization for Standardization) is a network of standards institutes from 159 countrieswith a central office in Geneva, Switzerland, that coordinates the system.ISO

    ISO is a non-governmental organization that forms a bridge between the public and private sectors, and is the largest standards organization in the world.

    • Many of its member institutes are part of the governmental structure of their countries, or are mandated by their government.
    • Some 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.
