A standard (industry, national, government, or international standard; a norme) is a document that describes the processes and methods that must be performed in order to achieve a specific technical or management objective, or the methods for evaluation of any of these. An example is ANSI/NCSL Z540-1- 994, a national standard that describes the requirements for the quality management system of a calibration organization and the requirements for calibration and management of the measurement standards used by the organization.
