The Impact of Standards on Business and Industry Roughly 80% of global merchandise trade is affected by standards and by regulations that embody standards. This means standardization affects virtually all products and services used or traded by the U.S. while also providing the nation industrial base with opportunities to influence international markets. Standards and conformity assessment programs play a key role in the transfer of technology, from the research and development stage, to production, and ultimately to a product's success in the marketplace. Strategic utilization of these programs can simplify product development, reduce unnecessary duplication, lower costs, increase productivity, ensure safety, permit interchangeability, compatibility, and interoperability, enhance the acceptance of new products, maintain uniformity in product quality and much more. By being part of the standards development process, industry representatives help to shape a standard so that the finished document meets their individual needs, as well as the needs of any customers they may have. Industry participation in the standards development process, for example, can seat company representatives at the same table with their customers. Identifying customer requirements early makes it easier to plan and integrate necessary design changes. This is also much more economical than trying to retrofit a product (and its manufacturing process) after a standard is approved. “Extracted” from an on-line lesson about Standards at ANSI Education page Go There
