How ISO decides to develop a standard

ISO launches the development of new standards in response to the sectors that express a clearly established need for them. An industry or business sector communicates its requirement for a standard to one of ISO's national members. The latter then proposes the new work item to ISO as a whole. If accepted, the work item is assigned to an existing technical committee. Proposals may also be made to set up technical committees to cover new scopes of activity.

At the end of 2006, there were 3 041 technical bodies in the ISO system, including 193 ISO technical committees.

The focus of the technical committees is specialized and specific. In addition, ISO has three general policy development committees that provide strategic guidance for the standards' development work on cross-sector aspects. These committees ensure that the specific technical work is aligned with broader market and stakeholder group interests. They are:

CASCO (conformity assessment)
COPOLCO (consumer policy), and
DEVCO (developing country matters)
