Organization for Standardization
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.
