Today we celebrate World Standards Day!
It is the occasion to pay tribute to the collaborative efforts of the thousands of experts worldwide who develop the voluntary technical agreements that are published as international standards.
This year’s theme is “Protecting the Planet with Standards”. The international standards prepared by IEC, ISO and ITU take into account tried and tested solutions to technical challenges and help share expertise and expert know-how broadly within developed and developing countries alike. Their broad use helps reduce the environmental impact of industrial production and processes, facilitates the reuse of limited resources and improves energy efficiency.
We are happy to share a
with you that includes animations, images for use on social media, a press release and this year’s winning poster. Please make use of these as well as the hashtag #worldstandardsday2020 and @IECStandards and we will be happy to retweet and repost!
Wishing you all a very happy World Standards Day!
