I guess I should know this however I don't , just what does it mean when they say this tool is made in a ISO factory ? Is the quality of the tools made there better than that of other manufactures ?
The International Organization for Standardization (Organisation internationale de normalisation), widely known as ISO, is an international standard-setting body composed of representatives from various national standards organizations. Founded on 23 February1947, the organization promulgates world-wide industrial and commercial standards. It is headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland.
While ISO defines itself as a non-governmental organization, its ability to set standards that often become law, either through treaties or national standards, makes it more powerful than most non-governmental organizations. In practice, ISO acts as a consortium with strong links to governments.
