International optical standards

Robert E. Parks

In 1979, the International Standards Organization (ISO) formed a technical committee (TC172) to work on international standards for optics and optical instruments. As part of the committee's work, an optical drawing standard was developed and will be published in draft form before the end of the year. Because all the countries that have large optical industries are participating in writing these standards and the various delegations have reached a general consensus, it can be assumed that the standard will be adopted worldwide shortly after it is published in final form.
