A standard is a document that provides requirements, specifications, guidelines, or characteristics that can be used consistently to ensure that materials, products, processes, and services are fit for their purpose. ISO Standards ensure that products and services are safe, reliable, and of good quality. For business, they are strategic tools, that reduce costs by minimizing waste and errors, and increasing productivity.
