Story and history of the establishment of the ISO International Organization
The history of ISO dates back to 1946, when representatives from 25 countries met at the Institute of Civil Engineers in London and decided to establish a new international organization to facilitate international cooperation and the integration of industrial standards. The new organization, ISO, was officially launched in 1947.
Since then, the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) has published more than 21,000 international standards covering almost every aspect of technology and manufacturing products.
Today, the members of this organization, consisting of 163 countries and 3368 technical members, are active in maintaining, maintaining and developing standards. More than 135 people work full time for the ISO Secretariat in Geneva, Switzerland.
ISO naming philosophy for the World Organization for Standardization
Since ISO, or the International Organization for Standardization, has different abbreviations in different languages (IOS in English, OIN in France), the founders decided to give it an abbreviated form of ISO.
ISO is derived from the Greek word ISOS meaning equality. Whatever the loss and wherever the country is, this organization and certification is always called ISO.
What are the benefits of ISO international standards?
