    A standard is basically an agreed way of doing something, which is often recorded and published formally.

    Most Standards are produced via groups of 'experts', known as technical committees. These are often comprised of representatives from businesses, trade associations, government and other groups.

    Organizations that want to demonstrate that they comply with a standard can use a third party that provides testing, certification, inspection or calibration services. This can lead to formal 'certification'.
