What are Standards?

Standards are documents that contain technical and other requirements that products and services have to comply with. These requirements could include design, material, performance, manufacturing and testing requirements, including packaging and labeling.

Standards are the result of a consultative process involving all interested parties in a consensus manner. Standards are a representation of the current state of technology.  They are updated to ensure their continuous applicability.  Generally every five years published standards are reviewed and either re-affirmed, revised or withdrawn.
