It has put together more than 19,100 standards as on May 2012.1 ISO makes possible the addressing of the different needs, business, governmental and societal. ISO is a network of different national standard bodies, one per country. As on May 2012, there are 164 of these national standard bodies. For India, the national standard body is the Bureau of Indian Standards, BIS. The strategic, technical and administrative support to all the members of ISO is provided by the ISO Central Secretariat, in Geneva, Switzerland.

ISO Standards have a unique value. This paper takes a comprehensive view of ISO and its activities, and also as to how dental institutions can gain by implementing the ISO process in its activities, bringing about standardization in practices and education.
