The International Organization for Standardization (French: Organisation internationale de normalisation), (ISO), is an international standard-setting body composed of representatives from various national standards organizations. Founded on 23 February 1947, the organization promotes worldwide proprietary, industrial and commercial standards. It is headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland. The organization's name would have different acronyms in different languages so it adopted the short name ISO, based on the Greek word isos ("equal").
