Overview

The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) is an independent, non-governmental organization that develops and publishes standards for various industries and activities.

ISO develops standards in a wide range of areas, including quality management, environmental management, information security, occupational health and safety, social responsibility, and more. These standards are developed by expert committees made up of representatives from industry, government, academia, and other stakeholders. The committees work together to develop consensus-based standards that reflect the best practices and latest technologies in their respective areas.

ISO standards are voluntary, meaning that organizations are not required to comply with them by law. However, many organizations choose to adopt ISO standards as a way to improve their operations, demonstrate their commitment to quality and sustainability, and gain a competitive advantage in their industry.

ISO certifications are granted to organizations that have undergone a formal audit and assessment process by an accredited certification body. This process typically involves a thorough review of the organization’s policies, procedures, and practices to ensure that they meet the relevant ISO standard’s requirements. Once an organization has demonstrated compliance with the standard, it is awarded an ISO certification that is valid for a specified period of time.

In summary, ISO is a globally recognized organization that develops and publishes standards for various industries and activities. ISO standards are voluntary but are widely adopted by organizations as a way to improve their operations, demonstrate their commitment to quality and sustainability, and gain a competitive advantage. ISO certifications are granted to organizations that have met specific standards and have undergone a formal audit and assessment process.
