Promote sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all

International Standards, by their very nature, promote economic growth by setting a common language and internationally agreed specifications that can be applied in the development of national and international regulation.

A product of best practice and consensus, they are also essential tools for reducing barriers to international trade, a contribution that is acknowledged in the World Trade Organization’s Agreement on Technical Barriers to Trade.

In addition, ISO also has many specific standards that promote decent work, not least ISO 45001, Occupational health and safety management systems – Requirements with guidance for use, designed to help companies and organizations worldwide protect the health and safety of the people who work for them.

Another barrier to economic growth is bribery, which can have a negative impact on employment opportunities. ISO 37001 on anti-bribery management systems contributes to economic prosperity by helping organizations fight bribery and promote an anti-bribery culture.
