ISO Standards can be thought of as formulas that describe the best way of doing something, like making a product, managing a process, delivering a service or supplying materials. Standards are written by subject matter experts representing manufacturers, sellers, buyers, customers, trade associations, users or regulators, all of whom contribute their knowledge and experience.
Some of the best-known and most widely-used International Standards include:
Quality Management Standards
These are designed to help organizations work more efficiently and reduce product failures.

Health and Safety Standards

Food Safety Standards

Energy Management Standards

IT Security Standards
These standards enable organizations of any kind to manage the security of assets such as financial information, intellectual property, employee details or information entrusted to third parties.
