International Organization for Standardization (ISO)

"The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) is a worldwide federation of national standards bodies from some 130 countries, one from each country."

ISO covers all technical fields except electrical and electronic engineering, which is the responsibility of the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC).

The short form, ISO, is not an acronym. It is derived from the Greek "isos", meaning "equal", which is the root of the prefix "iso-", such as in "isometric" (of equal measure or dimensions).

The ISO website includes a catalogue of available ISO International Standards. ISO publications are available from ISO member bodies, such as ANSI in the US, SCC in Canada, BSI in the UK, DIN in Germany, Anfor in France and SAA in Australia.

A complete list of member bodies is available at http://www.iso.ch/addresse/membodies.html.
