About ISO General Assembly 2013

As one of the world's leading producers of International Standards, the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) is a key player in the development of global markets for a very broad spectrum of subjects.

Each year, a host country organizes a multi-day forum that brings together more than 500 delegates and accompanying persons invited from ISO's 163 member countries. The General Assembly is the highest governing body of ISO and brings together the key decision makers in the world of standardization. It is an opportunity for all ISO members to get the most from their membership by sharing ideas and best practices; making useful contacts in the standardization fields; and shaping the global standardization agenda.

In addition to the meetings of the ISO General Assembly itself, there will also be meetings of the ISO Council, ISO Technical Management Board (ISO/TMB), ISO Committee on Developing Country Matters (ISO DEVCO), and an Open Session day on standards used in Russian industry.
