World Standards Day

International Standards Day is celebrated each year on 14 October, commemorating the date in 1946 when delegates from 25 countries gathered in London and decided to create an international organization focused on facilitating standardization.

The main players in standardization efforts (other than ISO itself) are the International Electrotechnical Commission, the International Telecommunications Union, the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, and the Internet Engineering Task Force.

The aim of World Standards Day is to raise awareness among regulators, industry and consumers as to the importance of standardization to the global economy and to pay tribute to the thousands of experts worldwide who develop the voluntary technical agreements that are published as International Standards. 


The 2018 ISO theme is International Standards and the Fourth Industrial Revolution retrieved from the ISO website.
