World Standards Day is celebrated annually on the 14th of October to mark the development of voluntary engineering and scientific standards.
World Standards Day also honors the efforts of thousands of experts across the globe, who came together to develop the voluntary technical agreements that are published as international standards.
These experts mostly worked under different standards development organizations such as the IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission), ISO (International Organisation for Standardization), ITU (International Telecommunication Union), IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) and the IETF (Internet Engineering Task Force). World Standards Day is also to celebrate the work of these organizations.
World Standards Day was established on 14th October 1946 and was formed by representatives from 25 countries where they gathered in London for the first time with the aim of creating an international organization solely focused on facilitating standardization.
The ISO was formed a year later in 1947. The first World Standards Day was celebrated on 14 October, 1970.
