What is SIST? *

The Slovenian Institute for Standardization (SIST) is the Slovenian national body responsible for preparing and adopting optional standardization documents. It is also a full member of international (ISO and IEC) and European organizations (CEN, CENELEC, ETSI), representing Slovenia’s interests.

The institute’s core activity includes preparing, issuance, and applying standards to improve the suitability of processes and services for their intended purposes, prevent trade barriers, and support technical cooperation.

All interested parties can participate in the standardization process through appropriate technical bodies composed of a balanced representation of manufacturers, legislators, laboratories, science, education and consumers.

What are standards?*

Standards are written agreements based on recognized results of science, technology and experience. They are designed to achieve optimal benefits for the community. Their use can eliminate many unnecessary barriers to trade, streamline production and services, and enable greater compatibility of products and services.

Standards can contain technical specifications and other precise criteria used as rules, instructions, test procedures, or definitions of individual characteristics. They are developed primarily to make the materials, products, processes and services that comply with them suitable for use.
