Standards serve as a foundation for services, processes, or product development and performance. They facilitate improvement, reduce business risks, encourage innovation, and support sustainable practices. They are a tool for consumers to understand and compare products and services, and often lead to a competitive edge. Standards can be nationally or internationally adopted, facilitating both national and international collaboration.
As consumers we often take standards for granted, yet they are present every day, everywhere, and at all times. They make our world run smoothly, and give us confidence as we navigate a multitude of choices.
