Selected Impacts of Documentary Standards Supported by NIST

During 2006 the Operating Units (OUs) of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) were canvassed for instances where NIST has played an active role in the development or implementation of documentary standards that: (1) have been broadly adopted, or (2) have produced or are expected to produce significant economic or societal benefits. This study reports on the results of this survey.
This is part of a broader NIST Technology Services (TS) effort to assess the impact of standards on globalcompetitiveness and innovation.
