World Standards Day14. október 2014
The 14th of October is World Standards Day that pays tribute to the thousands of men and women all over the world who develop standards within the framework of international organizations such as International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC), International Organization for Standardization(ISO) and International Telecommunication Union (ITU).
The goal of World Standards Day is to raise awareness between regulatory bodies, industry and consumers from a perspective of standardization in global economy.
In today’s world we perceive that buildings we move around in, the food, cars, electric appliances, toys, medical aids and many others not less important products or services which we use in our daily lives are dependent on certain rules. We can use as an example any electric appliance that was made in EU countries works on “ours“ 230V or we can buy a faucet made in Italy and its dimensions will be exactly the same as in Slovakia. Thanks to standards the medical care has the same quality of services in EU countries no matter who provides them. This is only a small fragment of examples that result from experts work in the standardization area.
Fundamentally standardization ensures that single products and services meet the imposed technical parameters. Standards are used for eliminating barriers in trade but also they protect our safety, health and our possessions.
On the occasion of World Standards Day Slovak Office of Standards, Metrology and Testing with the Slovak Society for Technical Standardization organize on the 25th of November 2014 a seminar. The seminar will be in line with the spirit of topic declared by International Standards Organizations ISO, IEC and ITU under the name „Standards Level The Playing Field“. A part of the seminar is dedicated to the celebratory awarding ceremony of the „ Vladimir’s List prize for standardization“.
