Standards Mean Business

Standards mean Business – to your company and its bottom line! The U.S Department of Commerce estimates that Standards and Conformity Assessment impact 80% of global commodity trade. For more than a century, voluntary consensus standardization and conformity assessment activities have been coalescing markets and saving money for organizations in both the private and public sectors.

Organizations who participate in standards development have a competitive advantage. They gain insider knowledge, have first access to information and can exert influence on technical content that may affect their business. Standards make cross-border interoperability possible, ensuring that products manufactured in one country can be sold and used in another. 

The future of printing is being driven by the work of ISO/TC130. Here is a list of standards that were recently published by TC130.
