The International Standards Organisation (ISO) is a worldwide federation of national standards bodies from some 130 countries, one from each country. The ISO promotes the development of standardisation in order to help facilitate the international exchange of goods and services as well as to help develop cooperation in intellectual, scientific, economic and technical activities.
The ISO has established many standards that affect records and archives work, particularly with regard to quality of microfilm, photographic equipment, paper quality and so on. ISO standards are identified by the term ‘ISO’ and a number, such as ISO 9000, the standard for quality management and quality assurance, or the ISO 14000 series of standards for environmental management. Of particular note is ISO/TC46/SC11: Information and Documentation: Archives and Records Management, which is drawing up an international standard for records management. Details of SC11 secretariat should be in ISO literature at www.iso.ch.
