Economic Benefits of Standards - International case studies - Volume 2

This is the second volume of case studies carried out using the ISO Methodology developed by ISO, with the support of Roland Berger Strategy Consultants to assess and quantify the economic benefits of standards mainly from a microeconomic perspective. It contains ten studies from nine countries carried out between 2011 and 2012 within companies and in close cooperation between an ISO member body, an academic institution, and staff of the ISO Central Secretariat, acting as advisors to the project team. The collection covers studies from South Asia (China – 2 studies – and Sri Lanka); South, Central, West and North Africa (respectively: Mauritius, Cameroon, Senegal and Egypt); Middle East (Jordan and Lebanon) and Italy. The book can be used in teaching to demonstrate how and for what purposes standards are used by companies and the benefits they can gain by implementing standards.
