Whenever we turn on a light switch, use the internet, or our children play with a toy, we’re usually using standards without knowing it.
Standards help to make products and services:
- Better quality
- Easier to use
When organisations use standards, it helps them to work in a better and smarter way, to improve their efficiency and be more innovative – and all those things benefit consumers. Some areas of organization’s activities are of particular interest to consumers, as they have the potential to have a significant impact on consumers. Key areas of priority to consumers are services, wellbeing, inclusivity, sustainability and the use of digital technologies.
