About the World Standards Cooperation
The World Standards Cooperation (WSC) was established in 2001 as a high-level group focusing on the common interests of the three world-wide international standards development organizations : the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC), the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the International Telecommunication Union (ITU).
The primary goals of the WSC are:
- to strengthen and advance the voluntary consensus-based international standards system that its members represent, and
- to promote and increase the worldwide visibility of international standardization and related conformity assessment matters.
Importance of the International Standards system
IEC, ISO and ITU believe that International Standards are an instrument enabling the development of a harmonized, stable and globally recognized framework for the dissemination and use of technologies, best practices and agreements, which support the overall growth of the Information Society.
