UNI - A world well made
UNI – Italian National Standards Body
We are a private, non-profit association that has been studying, developing, publishing and disseminating standards for over 100 years: voluntary technical standards.
UNI is a participatory centre where thousands of experts from all fields work in synergy with professionals, companies and consumers to create a large shared wealth of knowledge.
The magazine for a
well made world
STANDARD is UNI’s new magazine dedicated to the world of technical standards that improve our lives.
A new point of reference to understand how to build, day after day, a world well made. With one objective: to witness the value of standardisation.
Standards are everywhere in our lives
The parquet floor, the children’s seat, the university lecture, the coffee pot. Standards improve the quality of our day: at work, at school, at home, in our free time.
In 100 years we have made more than 48,000 standards available.
Every day they have helped us to have better products, more effective services, more competent people, more efficient organisations. And they will continue to do so in the future.

SMEs and start-ups
For small and medium-sized companies, standards are a great advantage. That is why it is important to know them, offer your opinion and adopt them.
For large groups, adopting standards and helping to develop them improves production quality, reduces costs and increases efficiency.
Professionals and self-employed workers
Standards are extraordinary tools for supporting professionals, updating their knowledge and qualifying their profession.
Standards are a valuable ally of Institutions
Standards are an outstanding driver of research and training
End consumers, people, citizens. The main beneficiaries of standards are us.
The standards of the future?
Write them with us
UNI members have a privileged view on the world of standardisation. They are always up-to-date with the latest news, but above all they can personally contribute to the creation of standards by making their voice heard.
Associating with UNI offers many advantages. The most important is that of being able to sit at the table of those who draw up standards. And to participate as a protagonist in defining the rules of one’s own sector, without ever being subjected to the choices of others.
