Standards

An introduction to technical standards: what they are, where they come from, how to get them.

International standards promote compatibility across countries. They enable people to work and build on a common model regardless of location.

Non-U.S. standards are country specific. While some are the same or similar to United States industrial standards, there are differences in content as well as language and labels.
