TECHNICAL STANDARDS – INTERNATIONAL STANDARDS
STANDARD: Provide requirements, specifications, guidelines or characteristics that can be used consistently. Major classifications of this term include • Material or substance whose properties are known with a level of accuracy that is sufficient to allow its use as a physical reference in calibrating or measuring the same properties of another material or substance. • Concept, norm, or priciple established by agreement, authority, or custom, and used generally as an example or model to compare or measure the qulity or performance of a practice or procedure. • Written definition, limit, or rule aaproved and monitored for compliance by an authoritative agency or professional or recognized body as a minimum acceptable benchmark.
