Standards and Laws

The difference between Standards and Laws

Laws are regulations and/or rules issued by government agencies. Rules and regulations command or prohibit; they require us to perform an action or desired behavior in accordance with the provisions. Standards in themselves are not laws, rather best practices. Everyone can benefit from them. In business agreements, standards have an important function. They offer market parties clarity about and confidence in products, services or organizations and challenge society to innovate. Standards can be given the same status by reference in legislation. Blomsma Signs & Safety, with its knowledge and experience, is actively involved in the development and testing of new standards, keenly aware of the topicality, application and content of existing standards and laws for safety signage.

Laws and Standards overview

Depending on the application and sector, different standards and laws apply. In the great land of standards, considerable strides have been made in harmonization. The synchronization of symbols and design guidelines for both the ISO 3864, ISO 7010, ISO 24409, ISO 16069 and a technical specification ISO TS 20559 are telling examples of this. But with all the standards and laws out there, choosing the right one can be tricky. To give you an insight into the available and relevant laws and standards, we have compiled an overview.

Our overview shows the most important standards and laws to which Blomsma Signs & Safety conforms when executing safety signage projects. We have also written an explanation of a number of frequently occurring standards, which can be accessed via the relevant tiles.
