What is World Standards Day?

World Standards Day takes place on 14 October each year – the precise date in 1946 when delegates from across the world first gathered in London to create an international organisation designed to facilitate standardisation.

Honouring the work of experts worldwide who develop voluntary standards within a variety of standards development organisations (including the International Organisation for Standardisation), World Standards Day is celebrated across the world with a variety of activities.

Raising awareness of the importance of standardisation to the global economy, World Standards Day achieves this via regulators, industry and consumers.
