Wherever you look you can find a standard!
Thanks to standards, books are unique. This is guaranteed by the so-called ISBN number, an internationally unified coding system making each work identifiable.

Who develops them?


Standards and standardization documents are developed by experts, participating in the work of BDS Technical Committees

In case of a proposal for a new work item, the Technical Committees developing the draft standard shall be convinced that:
  • there is a necessity for the existence of such a standard
  • the standard consistency can be achieved within a reasonable period of time
  • there is an opportunity for continual improvement of the standard after its publication
  • there is a market of the standard (the restricted sales opportunities of a standard shall not be the only reason for postponement or rejection of the draft).
