Iran jumped to the 22nd place on the ranking of the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), an official announced on Sunday.
The Head of Institute of Standards and Industrial Research of Iran (ISIRI) Nayerh Pirouzbakht broke the news while addressing the ceremony held on the occasion of World Standards Day in Iran International Conference Center in Tehran; an event which was also attended by First Vice-President Eshaq Jahangiri.
According to the ISO this year’s theme is “International Standards and the Fourth Industrial Revolution".
“The role of standards in small and medium enterprises, sustainable development, and opposing trade wars was stressed in this year’s ISO General Assembly,” she added.
She referred to the recent national and international achievements of ISIRI, adding that an Iranian was selected as the ISO Technical Management Board (ISO/TMBG) member last year.
On October 14, 1946, heads of the standard organizations of 25 countries decided to found an international body in charge of creating and updating global standards.
