Standards organization

From Academic Kids

Standards Organizations are bodies, organizations and institutions that produce, and in some cases measure, standards.

Standards Organizations are constituted at the national, transnational and international levels - e.g. the British Standards Institution, the European Committee for Standardization), and the International Telecommunication Union.

The subject of their work can be narrow or broad - e.g. the World Wide Web Consortium concentrates on matters concerned with the World Wide Web), whilst the International Organization for Standardization deals with standards over a broad range of disciplines.

Overlapping or competing standards bodies tend to cooperate purposefully, by seeking to define boundaries between the scope of their work, and by operating in a hierarchical fashion in terms of national, transnational and international scope; international organisations tend to have as members national organisations; and standards emerging at national level (such as BS 5750) can be adopted at transnational levels (BS 5750 was adopted as EN 29000) and at international levels (BS 5750 was adopted as ISO 9000).

Some standards groups are government agencies (like NIST). Some are private research institutes that act like government agencies (like ANSI). There are also private volunteer associations (like IETF), and private industry consortia (like W3C).
