#WaterIs Standards

The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) is an independent, non-governmental membership organization, composed of national standard bodies from its 163 member countries, developing voluntary international standards, as well as technical reports and specifications. For the water sector, there are more than 500 standards, ranging from how to assess, improve and manage water and wastewater services, to how to measure water quality and how to construct plastic piping and valves. Water efficiency is promoted through standards on water footprint calculations and efficient irrigation and wastewater reuse.

ISO standards have a great potential to contribute to a more sustainable management of water – read more about this in their World Water Day special edition newsletter.
