Today is World Standards Day:

Sometimes known as International Standards Day is celebrated internationally each year on 14 October. The day honours the efforts of the thousands of experts who develop voluntary standards within standards development organizations such as the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), International Telecommunication Union (ITU), and Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF). The aim of World Standards Day is to raise awareness among regulators, industry and consumers as to the importance of standardization to the global economy.

14 October was chosen to mark the date, in 1946, when delegates from 25 countries first gathered in London and decided to create an international organization focused on facilitating standardization. Though ISO was formed one year later, it wasn’t until 1970 that the first World Standards Day was celebrated.
