This week marks the celebration of the 2013 World Standards Week. World Standards Week is dedicated to raising global awareness of the importance of global standardization to the world economy and to promote its role in helping meet the needs of business, industry, government and consumers worldwide. The week includes World Standards Day on October 3, 2013. This year’s theme is “Standards for a World at Work and Play.”
We celebrate World Standards week with a tribute to the thousands of volunteers who participate and support standardization activities worldwide. We also thank the growing OpenStand community members for their advocacy in the promotion of open development principles. We believe our activities will help ensure an open future for the benefit of humanity.
We’re proud to support this week’s events and we encourage everyone to publicly Stand with the OpenStand Community this week.
