World Standard Day 2016

World Standards Day: celebrating trust

Each year on October 14th, the IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission), ISO (International Organization for Standardization) and ITU (International Telecommunication Union) members celebrate the World Standards Day and the collaborative efforts of thousands of experts worldwide who develop the voluntary technical agreements, published as international standards.

Standards connect us with reliable modes of communication, codes of practice and trusted frameworks for cooperation. 

"A product or service conforming to an international standard is imbued with a trusted symbol of quality, safety or compatibility. Standards speak to the diversity of our interconnected world, introducing uniformity at the interfaces where we need to be certain that we are speaking on the same terms.” –

A product or service complying to an international standard is a symbol of quality and safety.

DNV GL is a world-leading certification body, operating in more than 100 countries. Through the standards, we help businesses assure the performance of their organizations, products, people, facilities and supply chains.
