The ISO Excellence Award has been created to reward the achievements of ISO’s technical experts.

In addition, from time to time, ISO offers awards to selected sectors to recognize excellence and expertise in the world of standardization. Some past awards include:

  • The ISO Prize aimed at leaders in business, government and academia from outside the ISO community for their outstanding contribution to the understanding or use of ISO standards.
  • The ISO Award for Higher Education, which aims to encourage and recognize successful programmes in higher education on standardization.
