ISO runs a series of events to help you get the most from standards

Bringing standards to life through shared experiences and case studies, as well as identifying future trends where standards have a role to play, contributes to the goal of seeing ISO standards used everywhere.

You can see what's coming up next, as well as browse the archive of our most recent events to better see the wide range of topics covered and access resources.

Some events, such as our annual General Assembly, are only for ISO members. If you have a question about any of our events, past or future, get in touch with us, or connect with us on social media below.
