The Global Language Of Business

Standards for every industry sector

Our standards span industries, connecting businesses of all kinds so they can communicate, share data and perform transactions. Here are some of the sectors within which we work.

No matter where your business is based or what you do, establishing a common language with customers, suppliers and partners makes it easier to get things done. We work closely with our members to build standards that work for them. These are some of the main sectors in which our standards are applied:
