International Organization for Standardization is an international standard resident entity consisting of representatives from the national standardization bodies every country. At first, the abbreviation of the name of the institution is the IOS, not ISO. So it doesn’t have a ring to it, like most acronyms do. Hence, it’s made an abbreviation. But now more often use ISO abbreviation, as in Greek isos meaning equal. This usage can be seen in the word isometric or isonomi.
Founded on February 23, 1947, the ISO sets standards of industrial and commercial world. ISO, which is an international non-profit organization, originally formed to create and introduce international standardization for anything. Standards that should be familiar include the standard type of film photography, the size of a phone card, bank ATM card, the size and thickness of paper and more. In setting a standard they invited representatives from 130 countries members to serve on the Technical Committee (TC), Sub Committee (SC) and Working Groups (WG).
