Standards, including procedures, rules, codes, regulations, and jurisdictional requirements, play an important role in the engineering world. They furnish a means of ensuring consistent designs, quality, and operating characteristics, with adequate reliability, safe operation of components, and well-defined configurations. This book details their development, applications, limitations, and benefits to give the user, specifier, and standard writer a proper perspective of their importance, usefulness, and limitations, to promote their effective use and to improve the quality of future standards. While focusing on standards themselves, it also provides a brief introduction to the field of conformity assessment, by which compliance with standards is assured and verified.
