(that is, some of the more common ones that relate to computers, electronics and/or everyday things)

  • DIN (Deutsches Institut für Normung) [1] [2]
  • ISO (International Organization for Standardization) [3] [4]
a bunch of tecnical ones are joint committees with IEC, which then use the same numbering, in which case you'll often see ISO/IEC number

  • IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission) [5] [6]
e.g. IEC 60320 (common power connectors), ISO/IEC 646 (ASCII), IEC/DIN 60130 (DIN plugs), ISO/IEC 9075 (SQL99), ISO/IEC 9899 and 14882 (C and C++), ISO/IEC/IEEE 60559 (floating point)
  • ECMA (European Computer Manufacturers Association) [7] [8]
  • NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology)
    • Including FIPS (Federal Information Processing Standards) [9] [10]

  • ANSI (American National Standards Institute) [11] [12]
  • ASTM (American Society for Testing and Materials) (but actually international now) [13] [14]

  • IETF (Internet Engineering Task Force) [15] [16] (see also IESG)
    • Including RFCs
with various things now in WHATWG's hands
  • ISO (International Organization for Standardization) [19] [20]
  • ITU (International Telecommunication Union), split into:
    • ITU-T (Telecommunication, and previously CCITT) [21] [22]
    • ITU-R (Radiocommunication, and previously CCIR) [23] [24]. Related to media, e.g. TV/video signals, audio noise measurements, and such. See e.g. [25]
    • ITU-D (Development, and also known as BDT) [26] [27]

  • JIS (Japanese Industrial Standards), Japanese Industrial Standards Committee (JISC) [28], [29]
  • EIAJ (Electronic Industries Association of Japan)
  • JSA (Japanese Standards Association) [30]
