Role of Governments in Standards


There is a long history of governmental involvement with standards, beginning with establishment of some standards by government and continuing through the use by the government of standards developed by others. Facets of this involvement include direct development of standards (for internal or external use), involvement in the development of standards by other organizations, urging by governmental entities for development or change of standards, and use of standards.
