The measurement of software products is an area of software engineering, which cannot be considered as sufficiently mature not only in terms of practice, but also in terms of knowledge maturity. That is why over the last couple of years significant intensification of works could have been observed, which aimed to standardize the best practices of software products measurement. Various ISO/IEC norms have been developed as a result of these works, filling an important gap in the software engineering. One of the most important groups of ISO/IEC standards concerns the software product size measurement. Normalization of such measurement is mainly aimed at reducing unnecessary diversity in the area of software size measures, ensuring compatibility between the standardized approaches as well as their usefulness, especially for Business Software Systems. Thus the aim of the paper is to provide a synthetic presentation of these very aspects of the software products size measurement standardization.
