Industry Standard – things you should know

ISO/IEC Guide 2:1996 (definition 3.2) defines the Industry Standard as ‘A document established by consensus and approved by a recognized body that provides for common and repeated use, rules, guidelines or characteristics for activities or their results, aimed at the achievement of the optimum degree of order in a given context’.

In other words, the industry standards can be defined as generally accepted requirements by the members of a certain field of production. They are a group of criteria set to ensure an organized and systematic formulation, adoption, and implementation of a product or line of products. The industry standards differ from one industry to another.

The overall purpose of standards is to make things easier to deal with for manufacturers, designers, and end users.

In the fiber optic world, the most common and relevant standards in the fiber optic field are ISO/IEC, WEEW, IEEE, ANSI T.11, CENELEC, and TIA
