ISO Standards in Plain English

This web site discusses management standards. For many years, international
standard setting bodies have used experts to develop management standards
that codify best practices. In order to promote understanding and to encourage
the use of these important standards, we’ve translated them into Plain English.

International organizations such as ISO and IEC develop standards to manage
the quality of products and services, to assure the safety of medical devices and
food products, to control risk, to protect information, and to ensure that business
continues whenever disruptive incidents occur
. They also publish standards that are
used to protect the environment, the health and safety of workers, and the integrity
of supply chains. Taken together, these international standards offer a wealth of
knowledge and information that both public and private organizations can use to
improve their practices, to enhance their performance, and to achieve success.
