WHO organizes

The world's leading developers of international standards: the IEC, ISO and the ITU.

The three organizations collaborate on a number of initiatives, under the banner of the World Standards Cooperation.

Why it matters

Standards touch almost every part of our daily lives.

They ensure that products and services work the way that we expect them to, making life safer and more enjoyable.

Standards are essential to achieving the 2030 Agenda and creating a fairer, more sustainable world.

WHO benefits

Together with our members, we are celebrating standards as a global community.

Whether it's those who already contribute to the development of standards, those who work with standards, or those who want to find out more, World Standards Day is a global celebration of the power of standardization.
