The National Institute of Standards currently participates in the work of 61 technical committees and 3 policy making committees - CASCO, DEVCO and COOPOLCO. In 2014, the National Institute of Standards was elected a member of the ISO Council for the 2015-2017 period by secret voting of the ISO Assembly.

For this ISO Week was chosen the following slogan "Open minded. Open for change ", which essentially underlined the necessity of rapid adaptation to new technological developments and the new mentality of the younger generation.

In general, the ISO Week included the following events:

1. On October 18, the ISO Council session was held,

The president of DEVCO, the director of the Academy of ISO, the president of ISO, the secretary general of ISO, the vice-chairmen of ISO delivered separate speeches.

An open platform called "Open Zone" was opened in the lobby at the main hall of the Assembly, where the latest developments in the field of standardization were presented and at the same time the participants were interviewed on the priorities of the standardization and future development. At that level, DIN specialists presented a number of very interesting new concepts related to the involvement of the younger generation in standardization, the future format of technical committees' work, and so on.

In general, the 40th Assembly of ISO was held in high efficiency and recorded a number of significant achievements that will further enhance the international role of ISO and will promote the growth of globalization processes.
