ISO Economic Benefits of Standards

This publication is intended to assist businesses and individuals to demonstrate the tangible benefits that standards bring to organisations – and, more generally, to citizens and society, by:

  • Highlighting how standards create value for the organizations that use them, and how we calculate the value of standards, and
  • Providing factsheets of case studies that quantify the benefits of standards for companies of various sectors from over 20 countries.
