development,manufacturing and supply of products and services more

environmental lagislation.They aid in transferring technology to developing
countries. ISO standards also serve to safeguard consumers and users in
general,of products and services as well as to make their lives simpler. When
system,machinery and devices work well and safety then it is because they conform
to standards.
ISO is a non_governmental orgaanization. Its members are not,
as is the case in the united nations systems, delegations of national governments.
Nevertheless, ISO occupies a social position between the public and private
sectors. ISO is able to act as a bridging organization in which a consensus can be
reached on solutions thst meet both the requirments of business and the boarder
needs of society.

International standards provide a reference framework, or a
common technological language , between suppliers and their consumers – which
facilitates trade and the transfer of technology.
