World Standards Day (14/10)

Every year on October 14, the world celebrates Standards Day, or World Standards Day, is an international date designed to draw people's attention to the importance of actions related to the creation of uniform standards, and to celebrate the contribution of tens of thousands of professionals who devote their lives and professional mastery of responsible and necessary work.

On this day in 1946, a conference of national standards organizations opened in London. 25 countries, including the USSR, were represented by 65 delegates. The result of their work was the decision to create the International Organization for Standardization, ISO - International Organization for Standardization (ISO).

In 1970, ISO President Mr. Faruk Sunter (Turkey) proposed to celebrate World Standards Day on October 14 in order to emphasize the importance of standardization for the entire world economy.
