ISO/IEC Directives: A Guide

ISO/IEC Directives are a set of standards and guidelines issued by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) to ensure that all of their standards, technical specifications, and other documents are developed in a consistent, reliable, and transparent manner. They provide guidance on topics such as the structure and content of documents, the development and review process, the use of symbols, terminology, and abbreviations, and the use of language, among other things. They also provide guidance on the management and maintenance of standards and other documents, including their publication, registration, and withdrawal. The ISO/IEC Directives are designed to ensure that all of the documents produced by ISO and IEC are of the highest quality and provide the most reliable information to the public.
