Impact & Value of Standards

Members of the IEEE-SA Standards Board discuss the value of standards.

Members of the IEEE-SA Standards Board discuss the global impact of technical standards on worldwide industry and society.

Why Are Standards Important?

What Are Standards?

Standards are published documents that establish specifications and procedures designed to ensure the reliability of the materials, products, methods, and/or services people use every day. Standards address a range of issues, including but not limited to various protocols that help ensure product functionality and compatibility, facilitate interoperability and support consumer safety and public health.

Why are They Important to Your Business?

Standards form the fundamental building blocks for product development by establishing consistent protocols that can be universally understood and adopted. This helps fuel compatibility and interoperability and simplifies product development, and speeds time-to-market. Standards also make it easier to understand and compare competing products. As standards are globally adopted and applied in many markets, they also fuel international trade.

It is only through the use of standards that the requirements of interconnectivity and interoperability can be assured. It is only through the application of standards that the credibility of new products and new markets can be verified. In summary standards fuel the development and implementation of technologies that influence and transform the way we live, work and communicate.

How is the IEEE-SA Involved?

The IEEE-SA brings together a broad range of individuals and organizations from different technical and geographic points of origin to facilitate standards development and standards related collaboration.

IEEE-SA Corporate Members are a driving force behind the development of standards, providing technical expertise and innovation, impacting the direction of technologies, and pursuing the ongoing advancement and promotion of new concepts.
