“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.”
