IEEE Standards that Transform Our Lives and Work


Every year on 14 October, IEEE Standards Association (IEEE SA) joins the international community in celebrating the importance of standards development and honoring the collaboration of individuals and organizations across the globe who drive technological innovation.

Our theme for this year’s celebration is IEEE Standards that Transform Our Lives and Work.

Imagine a world where you could not access the Internet, Wi-Fi, or Bluetooth, where you could not track your health on your favorite app, or where you could not find the right product with trusted quality or functions. In a world without IEEE Standards, we would not be able to enjoy the benefits of technological innovations or even live or work in the way we are used to.

Today, there are nearly 1,200 published IEEE Standards that aim to make our lives easier, safer, and more sustainable. You may not have noticed them, but these standards touch every piece of technology you own, providing the connectivity, interoperability, and security that we live and breathe every day.
