Summaries of 880 of the most viewed or purchased standards have been uploaded onto the site in order to make it easier for businesses to assess whether they require a certain standard. The summaries cover national, international and European Standards.
Standards can be used to improve an organisation’s ability to meet customer, regulatory, as well as a businesses’ own requirements. The majority of standards serve to provide guidance to businesses; there are also a number that help businesses adhere to legal requirements.
