ISO 26000 celebrating 10 years 2020

10 years after publication, ISO 26000 will be celebrated both locally and globally during fall 2020. Here are some examples:

  • ISO: the very well visited website iso.org will highlight ISO 26000
  • ISO 26000 SGN is organizing a 10 Year ISO 26000 Anniversary Event in Beijing from 25-27 November 2020. This event is  supported by ISO’s Chinese NSB member, the Standardization Administration of People’s Republic of China (SAC) and by the consultancy GoldenBee.
  • Argentina, India, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Spain: local events being planned in consultation with the national standards bodies

  1. I’d be interested in views regarding how NSBs or others would shape ISO 26000 differently if it were being developed today. What are the fundamental differences in our societies that might call for extra attention? Thank You, Prof Malcolm J Fisk (De Montfort University, UK)

    1. Hi Malcolm, great question. It is not the NSBs that would write, it is the national experts (through the NSBs). Hence, difficult to get an organized response to your question. Based on the feedback I have received from different stakeholder groups over the past few years:
      1) the standard is surprisingly robust and still relevant when used operationally in organizations (and by consultants), examples the alignment with the Ruggie/UN Guiding principles, the 7 principles and the 7 core subjects, most parts of clause 7.
      2) examples of issues that may need to be updated or further given guidance on: tax evasion, supporting civil and political rights, climate, interface to quality management, governance, circular economy, resilience, tenure rights, indigenous peoples rights, procurement, due diligence, maybe sustainability accounting/reporting
      Kind regards/Staffan
