In every aspect of the ISO system, from engaging experts to promoting the benefits of standards, a strong national standards body is key to standardization’s success.
Vision of our projects
Empower ISO’s developing country members to contribute actively to the ISO system and fully realize the benefits of using ISO standards that address social, economic and environmental challenges
Active participation of developing countries in international standardization is fundamental to ensuring the global relevance of ISO standards and establishing the right conditions for effective implementation of these standards in developing countries.
Achieving this will make an important contribution towards making the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and ISO’s vision for 2030 of “making lives easier, safer and better” a reality.
To accomplish this vision, we believe that the following two objectives must be achieved:
- Increased use of ISO standards and their national adoptions in developing countries to support the SDGs, particularly those relating to trade and climate change
- Increased effective participation of ISO’s developing country members at governance and technical levels to support the global relevance of ISO standards
