Celebrating World Standards Day 2020
Protecting the planet with standards
Each year on the 14th of October, the Standardization community comes together to celebrate the value, benefits, and progress standards have brought.
Consumers seeking eco-friendly solutions and products can find them because of testing and certification programs developed through standardization. Products and services are evaluated to confirm that they meet recycling and sustainability requirements and labeling and certifications are issued as evidence of their compliance.
Industry can have confidence that their supplies and materials are responsibly resourced, such as being organic and conflict free, through the establishment of standards and confirmation through assessment and testing.
Government agencies can protect communities from harmful chemicals in the ground, water, and air by establishing benchmarks for safety, minimums for quality, and requiring compliance with clean practices.
The value of standards can be found all around you in nature, your community, and at home. Share your story of how #standardsbringvalue to your day-to-day life with Women in Standards today. Click Here to submit your testimonial.
