The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) was established in 1947 with 67 technical committees. The first World Standards Day, however, was formally inaugurated in 1970 by the then president of ISO, Farooq Santer. The date of 14th October was chosen to commemorate the first meeting of representatives of 25 countries in London on 14th October 1946, who decided to design a global organization to facilitate standardization. He created ISO a year later.
