For companies; the adoption of international standards helps providers base their product development in the contrast of extensive market data of their sectors, thus enabling industrialists to compete ever more freely and effectively in many more markets around the world. For Governments; International standards provide the technological and scientific bases underpinning health, safety and environmental quality legislation. For developing countries; International standards constitute an important source of technological know-how, by defining the characteristics expected of products and services to be placed in the export markets, international standards give thus a basis to these countries to make correct decisions to wisely invest their scarce resources and avoid waste. For consumers; the conformity of products and services to international standards provides assurance of their quality, safety and reliability. For each; International standards can contribute to improving the quality of life in general ensuring that transportation, machinery and instruments we use are safe and healthy. For the planet we inhabit; because there are international standards on air, water and soil quality, as well as on gas emissions and radiation, we can contribute to the effort to preserve the environment.
