ISO Guidelines on Social Responsibility

The first meeting of the ISO group developing the International Standard for guidelines on social responsibility has been scheduled for March 7-11, 2005 in Salvador, Bahia, Brazil. ISO expects that developing the standard will take three years, with publication in early 2008.

The standard will provide guiding principles on social responsibility. It will not be a management system standard and will not be for certification purposes. For more information, go to
