ISO Secretary-General Rob Steele comments, “ISO standards are an important source of best practice, innovation and technical knowledge in almost all subject areas, from the food industry to automobiles to project management.

“Understanding the wide scope of available standards and the latest developments is essential for leaders, managers, scientists and engineers, regulators, students and many others – and ISO Focus+ is the easy way to keep up-to-date. We hope that readers will enjoy the new application, which makes it even simpler to access the highly informative articles in the magazine.”

ISO Focus+ is also available in PDF format free of charge on the ISO Website (www.iso.org/isofocus+). Printed versions can be ordered online (1 year subscription 38 Swiss francs) or by contacting our sales team at sales@iso.org.
