Templates for word processors

Their purpose is to simplify the drafting of International Standards and similar publications by providing document "skeletons" that incorporate a range of predefined stylistic and structural rules as well as ensuring that the electronic files of the document can be processed easily by the ISO Central Secretariat and other members of the ISO infrastructure. In addition, the electronic files may be converted to a different word-processing format with a certain guarantee of success. These aids to authoring are designed to save time and effort in the preparation and processing of standards by providing on-the-spot help concerning the drafting rules specified in the ISO/IEC Directives.
