“Intelligent and sustainable buildings”.
World Standards Day is celebrated internationally each year on October 14th. The day honours the efforts of the thousands of experts who develop voluntary standards within standards development organizations such as the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC), which develops international standards for the electrical and electronics industries; International Organization for Standardization (ISO), and the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) an international organization responsible for the coordination, development, regulation, and standardization of telecommunications standards.
World Standards Day began as a celebration of the birth of the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), which held its first meeting in London on October 14, 1946. From an initial roster of 25 countries, ISO (based in Geneva, Switzerland) now has 123 member nations and has evolved into the global clearinghouse for all standards activities.
The goal of World Standards Day is to raise awareness of the importance of global standardization to the world economy and to promote its role in helping meet the needs of business, industry, government, and consumers worldwide.
The theme of this year’s World Standards Day message is “Intelligent and sustainable buildings“.
