Which Standard should I use?

The prefix of the standard provides clues as to which country it originates from. For example, ASTM stands for American Society for Testing and Materials and ANSI stands for American National Standards Institute. ASTM and ANSI are typically used in the United States. ISO, which stands for International Standard Organization, defines many standards which are international in nature and are often used in many countries.

For worldwide acceptance, it is best to perform tests using ISO standards. ISO standards can be in different languages. Selecting a BS ISO (British Standard ISO) or an EVS ISO (Estonia ISO) assures you that the standard will be in English. A DIN ISO (Deutsches Institut fur Normung ISO) will most likely be in German.

National or international standards organizations such as ANSI or ISO define many standards and it can be daunting to determine which suit your needs the best. For any help in determining and then implementing standards best suited for your needs, reach out to the team at Conformity Tech.
