A STANDARD is an agreed, repeatable way of doing something. It is a published document that contains a technical specification or other precise criteria designed to be used consistently as a rule, guideline, or definition. Standards help make life simpler and increases reliability and effectiveness of many goods and services. They are intended to be inspirational - a summary of good and best practice rather than general practice. Standards are created by bringing together the experience and expertise of all interested parties such as the procedures, sellers, buyers, users, and regulators of a particular material, product, process, or service.
