ISO 16128 standard

Since its publication in 2017, the ISO 16128 standard has created some controversy.
It's part of our assocation's values to try and educate the consumer as to why this publication could be misleading to the consumer. You'll find on this page a variety of articles and videos that help clarify the topic.
