ISO members

We are a network of national standards bodies. These national standards bodies make up the ISO membership and they represent ISO in their country.

There are three member categories. Each enjoys a different level of access and influence over the ISO system. This helps us to be inclusive while also recognizing the different needs and capacity of each national standards body. Countries with limited resources or without a fully developed national standards system can still observe and keep up to date with international standardization in ISO. Read more about how ISO supports developing countries in international standardization work.

ISO Membership Manual

This ISO Membership Manual explains what members can do in ISO, according to each membership category. It sets out for members how to get the most from ISO membership and take a full and active part in international standardization. It is an interactive PDF with bookmarks and hyperlinks. Do give feedback on how we can improve the Manual to: members@iso.org
