As the core of the Sustainable Development Goals, the right to development encourages every country in the world to participate to a constant improvement on its social, cultural, and political process. One of the measurements to ensure that a country is developing is through standards establishment. Standards serve as a platform wherein people and organizations develop a mutual understanding that will facilitate quality, safety, and market trade of products. As defined by ISO/IEC Guide 2:2004, a standard is a document established by consensus, and approved by a recognized body, that provides for common and repeated use, rules and guidelines or characteristics for activities or their results, aimed at the achievement of the optimum degree of order in a given context. In the Philippines, the development of standards specifically the Philippine National Standards is facilitated by the government.
