ISO (International Organization for Standardization) is the world’s largest developer of voluntary International Standards. International Standards give state of the art specifications for products, services and good practice, helping to make industry more efficient and effective. Developed through global consensus, they help to break down barriers to international trade.
Our customers can be assured that Khipu operates to the highest
internationally recognised practices.
The ISO story began in 1946 when delegates from 25 countries met at the Institute of Civil Engineers in London and decided to create a new international organisation ‘to facilitate the international coordination and unification of industrial standards’.
In February 1947 the new organisation, ISO, officially began operations. Since then the ISO have published over 19 500 International Standards covering almost all aspects of technology and manufacturing. Today ISO have members from 164 countries and 3 368 technical bodies to take care of standard development. More than 150 people work full time for ISO’s Central Secretariat in Geneva, Switzerland. Because ‘International Organisation for Standardisation’ would have different acronyms in different languages (IOS in English, OIN in French for Organisation internationale de normalisation), The founders decided to give it the short form ISO. ISO is derived from the Greek isos, meaning equal. Whatever the country, whatever the language, the short form of our name is always ISO.
