The “International Standarization Organization” (ISO) is based in Geneva and is an entity that develops standardization worldwide.

It includes a federation of national bodies that are in charge of standardization in each country. Some examples of them are:

  • AFNOR France
  • DIN Germany
  • BSI United
  • Kingdom
  • AENOR Spain

The ISO standards allow to unify and coordinate products and services on an international scale, which translates into a reduction of costs and gives greater effectiveness to national standards.

Although these rules do not have a mandatory nature but only an indicative one, their acceptance is increasing all over the world given the multiple advantages that this entails.

A list of the most important ISO standards affecting the metal sector is listed below. Its parity with others can be seen on the EQUIVALENCE OF STANDARDS page.
