Afghanistan gets full ISO membership

ISOAfghanistan National Standards Authority (ANSA) receives full membership of the International Organization for Standardization (ISO).

Addressing a press conference in Kabul, ANSA Technical Deputy Mujeeb-ul-rahman Khateer said there are three stages of membership in ISO: 1st-Member Bodies, 2nd-Correspondent Membership, 3rd-Subscriber Membership.

He said Afghanistan’s membership was upgraded from the second stage to the first stage.

Being a full member of the ISO, Afghanistan would have opportunities to develop new standards and improve the existing standardization in the country.

Khateer said the membership would help gain national and international credibility for Afghanistan’s products.

He added that the membership requires ANSA to improve its capacity building and technical and administrative skills to meet ISO’s requirements of Member Bodies.

ANSA has so far developed 413 national standards for different sectors including medicines, agriculture, construction, electronics, plastics and demining.

ISO (International Organization for Standardization) is an independent, non-governmental membership organization and the world’s largest developer of voluntary International Standards. ISO has published more than 19 500 International Standards covering almost every industry, from technology, to food safety, to agriculture and healthcare. ISO International Standards impact everyone, everywhere.
