International Organization for Standardization (ISO) is the world's largest developer of standards. It is a network of the national standards institutes of 162 countries and is a nongovernmental organization. Many of its member institutes are part of the governmental structure of their countries, or are mandated by their government, while other members have roots uniquely in the private sector. Therefore, ISO is able to act as a bridging organization in which a consensus can be reached on solutions that meet both the requirements of business and the broader needs of society.
