About us

UNI – Italian 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.

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.

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.
