“By creating a friendly, easy-to-use application for tablets, we are opening our magazine to a larger audience, making it more convenient for readers who like to access content in this way,” says Nicolas Fleury, the director of ISO marketing, communication, and information.
Features of the new app:
• Available in English and French
• Access to the latest issue of the magazine
• Access to archives (all issues since January 2010)
• Advanced search functionality
• Intuitive navigation

“ISO standards are an important source of best practice, innovation, and technical knowledge in almost all subject areas, from the food industry to automobiles to project management,” says ISO’s secretary-general, Rob Steele. “Understanding the wide scope of available standards and the latest developments is essential for leaders, managers, scientists and engineers, regulators, students, and many others, and ISO Focus+ is the easy way to keep up to date. We hope that readers will enjoy the new application, which makes it even simpler to access the highly informative articles in the magazine.”
ISO Focus+ is also available in PDF format free of charge on the ISO website at www.iso.org/isofocus+. Printed versions can be ordered online (a one-year subscription is 38 Swiss francs) or by contacting the ISO sales team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
