Launched in January 2010, ISO Focus+ illustrates ISO standards at work, and the benefits they bring users and stakeholders worldwide. With an emphasis on putting a face on the people who dedicate themselves to standardization, ISO Focus+ highlights the technical groups that develop ISO standards, and the people who use them.
In addition to current editions of ISO Focus+, the entire collection of previous issues of ISO Focus+ and ISO's previous two magazines, ISO Focus (2004-2009) and ISO Management Systems (2001-2009), will also be available free of charge as electronic files.
According to ISO, the move is intended to respond to the increasing interest in standardization by managers in business and public sector organizations, government officials, regulators, politicians, journalists, academics and students, consumer representatives, labor officials, nongovernmental organizations and others.
"This initiative will help to further promote knowledge of the global contribution that ISO international standards can make in providing practical tools for tackling global challenges in the service of the international community," said ISO Secretary-General Rob Steele.
