What are Standards?

Standards are a set of technical definitions and guidelines, basically "how to" instructions for designers, manufacturers and users. They promote safety, reliability, productivity, and efficiency in almost every industry that relies on engineering components or equipment. Standards are produced by scientific and professional organizations, trade organizations, and governments, nationally and internationally.
