Standardisation is a systematically initiated common harmonisation of processes, systems, terms or product characteristics for the benefit of a user group. The creation of standards is a uniform approach which, on one hand, makes it possible to measure quality and thus make it comparable. On the other hand, standardisation increases efficiency by eliminating uncertainties in planning as well as reducing technical and financial adjustments or coordination, thus simplifying the movement of goods and services. This chapter deals with the basic structure of EN 9100.

In the following only briefly EN 9100.
