List of ISO technical committees

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

This is a list of ISO technical committees.

International Organization for Standardization (ISO) is a standards-making body, similar to the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC). ISO works with National Committees in different countries in preparing and maintaining standards. ISO is the largest developer and publisher of international standards in the world.

Committee list[edit]

The ISO standards making process, similar to many other standards making processes, is handled by various technical committees (TC). The TCs are the key bodies that drive the standardization and comprise experts from the national committees and are a completely voluntary effort.

This list is intended to detail the various technical committees of ISO, the scope of the committees, their key members and the key relevance and outputs of these committees.
