Standardization also brings innovation, first because it provides structured methods and reliable data that save time in the innovation process and, second, because it makes it easier to disseminate groundbreaking ideas and knowledge about leading-edge techniques.
Basic Principle of Standardization
1. Standards meet or exceed market needs. (Respond to requests from your clients)
2. Standards should be voluntary. (Commitment to compliance and security)
3. Standards are based on a consensus among experts in the field. (ISO, NIST, WTO)
