Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) is the National Standards body of India which has been successfully promoting and nurturing standards in the country since 1947. With over 500 qualified technical and scientific personnel and more than 25,000 experts voluntarily associated with standardization activities, BIS has formulated around 19,000 standards in various technological and industrial areas. Every year, more than 300 new standards and 300 amendments are published.
Indian Standards have been segmented into 14 Sections as per their Technical Divisions.
BSI, earlier known as British Standard Institution was the world’s first National Standards Body Formed in 1901 by Sir John Wolfe-Barry - the man who designed London’s Tower Bridge. BSI produces British Standards, and, as the UK's National Standards Body, is also responsible for the UK publication in English, of international and European standards. BSI is obliged to adopt and publish all European Standards as identical British Standards (prefixed BS EN). BSI also has the option to adopt and publish international standards (prefixed BS ISO or BS IEC).
CSA began as the Canadian Engineering Standards Association (CESA) in 1919, federally chartered to create standards.
For 100 years, CSA has remained an organization dedicated to safety, sustainability, and social good. From developing standards for aircraft parts, bridges, and wire rope in 1919, to enhancing standards with over 70,000 global members.
Deutsches Institut für Normung e.V. (DIN; in English, the German Institute for Standardization) founded in 1917, which represents the interests of German stakeholders worldwide. According to an agreement with the Federal Republic of Germany, DIN is recognized as the national standards body for Germany. Wherever standards are set in Germany, DIN is a unifying force.
Hydraulic Institute (HI), founded in 1917 is known as "The Global Authority on Pumps and Pump Systems". It is the largest association of pump industry manufacturers in North America.

The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE, read I-Triple-E) is the world's largest professional organization dedicated to advancing technological innovation and excellence for the benefit of humanity. It is headquartered in New York and is a not-for-profit corporation. IEEE's roots go back to 1884 when electricity began to become a major influence in society. There was one major established electrical industry, the telegraph, which since the 1840s had come to connect the world with a data communications system faster than the speed of transportation. The telephone and electric power and light industries had just gotten underway.
Established on 23rd Feb 1947, The International Organization for Standardization (ISO), is an independent, non-governmental international standards development organization having representatives from various national standards organizations of member countries.
