Who is ISO? (International Organization for Standardization)
ISO is a non-governmental organization that bridges the gap between the public and private sectors. ISO is the largest standards organization in the world.
- Many of its member institutes are part of the governmental structure of their countries, or are mandated by their government.
- Some 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.
