Good Standardization Practices in support of international trade

The United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) and the the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) are pleased to announce that the ISO Good Standardization Practices (GSP) eLearning course is now available!

Developed jointly by UNIDO and ISO, with contributions from the Swiss Confederation’s State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO) and the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida), the training helps to support international trade integration. It accomplishes this through highlighting the best practices and processes to develop and publish standards in an effective and efficient manner.

The active participation of developing countries in the standards-setting process is essential for the successful uptake of international standards and for ensuring that developing countries benefit fully from the use of standards addressing social, economic and environmental challenges.

To this end, this eLearning course is primarily aimed at staff of National Standards Bodies—especially those in developing countries—and members of national technical committees, and will help foster the implementation of best practices at both the national and international level.

The training is hosted by ISO and accessible through the UNIDO Knowledge Hub.

Register now for the first cycle of the course here.
