In Sweden, standardisation is carried out by three standardisation bodies: SIS, Swedish Standards Institute, for business areas covered by ISO and CEN; ITS (Informationstekniska Standardiseringen) for all telecom standardisation and SEK (Svensk Elstandard) for all standards concerning electrical, electronic and related technologies.
SIS, Swedish Standards Institute represents Sweden in international standardisation within ISO and CEN. The organization comprises two main areas: SIS, Swedish Standards Institute, which develops Swedish standards and contributes to the development of International standards, and SIS Förlag AB, a wholly-owned subsidiary of SIS which publishes and sells standards and handbooks and offers training and consulting services.
SIS works closely with the private sector, Swedish authorities, consumer representatives and other stakeholders.
As a non-profit organisation, SIS promotes Swedish participation in international standardisation activities in order to give Swedish organisations the opportunity to influence the content of international standards.
