The Importance of Standards
The importance of standards cannot be understated. They provide a common language that allows different countries and industries to communicate and trade with each other. They help to ensure quality and safety, and make it possible for new technologies to be adopted quickly and efficiently.
Standards also have an important economic role. They promote competition by level the playing field for companies operating in international markets. And they can help to boost productivity and innovation by making it easier for businesses to access new markets and adopt new technologies.
On World Standards Day, we celebrate the role that standards play in our lives and in the global economy. By coming together to share our knowledge and expertise, we can continue to make progress towards a more sustainable future.
WORLD STANDARDS DAY 2022 Theme: Shared Vision for a Better World
In 2022, IEC, ISO and ITU continue their multi-year campaign to increase understanding of how international standards contribute to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals.
History of World Standards Day
Since its inception in 1946, the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) has played a pivotal role in promoting international collaboration and cooperation in the development of standards. In recognition of the importance of standards, ISO member countries celebrate World Standards Day on October 14 each year.
The theme of World Standards Day 2020 is “Standards build trust”. This theme was chosen to highlight how standards contribute to building trust between organizations, governments, businesses and individuals around the world.
With over 22 000 international standards covering everything from technical specifications to best practices, ISO plays a key role in fostering global trade and ensuring that products and services are safe, reliable and of good quality. ISO standards also help companies to access new markets, level the playing field for small and medium-sized enterprises, and make it possible for developing countries to participate in global value chains.
In addition to promoting the use of international standards, World Standards Day is also an opportunity to reflect on the achievements of the standardization community and to look ahead to the challenges facing standardization in the future.
