About the 2013 Theme

Voluntary consensus standards play an essential role in promoting quality, consistency, and dependability across a vast array of industries, providing major benefits to the global economy and to the lives of people around the world. This year’s U.S. Celebration of World Standards Day – Standards for a World at Work and Play – focused on how standards bring confidence to businesses, governments, and consumers, impacting reliability from farm to table, manufacturer to retailer, and workplace to home.

Standards facilitate technological innovations and foster evolving social and environmental compliance practices that increase the health and safety of the world and its citizens. They are the foundation upon which developing nations build their economies and compete in the global market. Developed by collaborative bodies that act as forums for the public and private sectors to come together for a common good, standards evolve to meet the changing needs of a world at work and play.
