Innovative technologies as a subject for international standardizations

Updated: Jul 4


Innovative technologies are taking over the world. Every day, every minute, every second, a new device is created, a new method of applying existing technologies, and the world is inevitably changing in connection with this. Since the abundance of electrical devices and communications, as well as the abundance of artificial intelligence, significantly affects human life, the maintenance of the above-mentioned devices in chaos can have disastrous consequences for humanity. Also, one should not forget that with the advent of the Internet and the acceleration of information transfer methods, the number of risks of information leakage has increased and the issue of security is becoming more and more relevant every day. Today we will acquaint you with the international standards responsible for the safety of data transmission and also giving technical recommendations for the areas in which these technologies are used.


Information technology -- Security techniques -- Code of practice for information security controls based on ISO/IEC 27002 for cloud services

ISO/IEC 27017:2015


Information security issues are increasingly being raised in modern society and are relevant both in the key of every person's daily life and in the organizational structure of a business. One of the international standards regulating this issue is ISO / IEC 27017: 2015.


ISO/IEC 27017:2015 gives guidelines for information security controls applicable to the provision and use of cloud services by providing: - additional implementation guidance for relevant controls specified in ISO/IEC 27002; - additional controls with implementation guidance that specifically relate to cloud services. This Recommendation | International Standard provides controls and implementation guidance for both cloud service providers and cloud service customers.


Since today there are a large number of methods for fast transmission of information, we recommend that you clarify in more detail which of them is described in this document by clicking on the link to the site and reading all the technical parameters.


Innovation management - Fundamentals and vocabulary (ISO 56000:2020)

EN ISO 56000:2021


Sometimes, for technological standards such as, for example, describing the issue of information security, explanatory documents are created to avoid misperception of this or that term. One notable example is EN ISO 56000: 2021.


This document provides the vocabulary, fundamental concepts and principles of innovation management and its systematic implementation. It is applicable to:

a) organizations implementing an innovation management system or performing innovation management assessments;

b) organizations that need to improve their ability to effectively manage innovation activities;

c) users, customers and other relevant interested parties (e.g. suppliers, partners, funding organizations, investors, universities and public authorities) seeking confidence in the innovation capabilities of an organization;

d) organizations and interested parties seeking to improve communication through a common understanding of the vocabulary used in innovation management;

e) providers of training in, assessment of, or consultancy for, innovation management and innovation management systems;

f) developers of innovation management and related standards.

1.2 This document is intended to be applicable to:

a) all types of organizations, regardless of type, sector, maturity-level or size;

b) all types of innovations, e.g. product, service, process, model and method, ranging from incremental to radical;

c) all types of approaches, e.g. internal and open innovation, user-, market-, technology- and design-driven innovation activities.

This document specifies the terms and definitions applicable to all innovation management and innovation management system standards developed by ISO/TC 279.


Since there are a large number of clarifying features in this standard, we recommend that you study them in detail and check them with the technological base of your organization to be sure that it is this document that will allow you to carry out the most productive promotion of your organization at the international level.



Innovation management - Innovation management system - Guidance (ISO 56002:2019)

EN ISO 56002:2021


An innovative management system is essential in building a productive business structure today, which is why it is so important to pay attention to the regulatory documents that regulate it from the foundation to the final stage. One of these is the international standard EN ISO 56002: 2021.


This document provides guidance for the establishment, implementation, maintenance, and continual improvement of an innovation management system for use in all established organizations. It is applicable to:

a) organizations seeking sustained success by developing and demonstrating their ability to effectively manage innovation activities to achieve the intended outcomes;

b) users, customers, and other interested parties, seeking confidence in the innovation capabilities of an organization;

c) organizations and interested parties seeking to improve communication through a common understanding of what constitutes an innovation management system;

d) providers of training in, assessment of, or consultancy for, innovation management and innovation management systems;

e) policy makers, aiming for higher effectiveness of support programs targeting the innovation capabilities and competitiveness of organizations and the development of society.

1.2 All the guidance within this document is generic and intended to be applicable to:

a) all types of organizations, regardless of type, sector, or size. The focus is on established organizations, with the understanding that both temporary organizations and start-ups can also benefit by applying these guidelines in all or in part;

b) all types of innovations, e.g. product, service, process, model, and method, ranging from incremental to radical;

c) all types of approaches, e.g. internal and open innovation, user-, market-, technology-, and design-driven innovation activities.

It does not describe detailed activities within the organization, but rather provides guidance at a general level. It does not prescribe any requirements or specific tools or methods for innovation activities.


If a certain number of amendments in this document misleads you, we recommend that you consult with a specialist in order to clarify whether this international standard is suitable for implementation into the existing structure of your organization, or requires certain amendments and improvements, namely, in your case, selection another more appropriate document in a related industry.


Innovation management - Tools and methods for innovation partnership - Guidance (ISO 56003:2019)

EN ISO 56003:2021


In the creation of innovative products, one of the key roles is played by the creation of the right partnership with the help of which it is possible to exchange technologies, recommendations, financial and resource support, as well as many other important aspects for creating a developing system. One of the international standards that provides recommendations for creating the most productive partnerships is EN ISO 56003: 2021.


This document provides a guidance for innovation partnerships. It describes the innovation partnership framework (see Clause 4 to Clause 8) and the sample corresponding tools (see Annex A to Annex E) to

— decide whether to enter an innovation partnership,

— identify, evaluate and select partners,

— align the perceptions of value and challenges of the partnership,

— manage the partner interactions.

The guidance provided by this document is relevant for any type of partnerships and collaborations and it is intended to be applicable to any organizations, regardless of its type, size, product/service provided, such as:

a) start-ups collaborating with larger organizations;

b) SMEs or larger organizations;

c) private sector entities with public or academic entities;

d) public, academic or not-for-profit organizations.

Innovation partnerships start with a gap analysis, followed by the identification, and engagement, of potential innovation partners and the governance of their interaction.


This standard is suitable for both novice startups and large businesses. After all, the issue of partnership is always relevant and in most cases is responsible for profitable development and scaling in the future. That is why if your organization is aimed at long-term development, we recommend that you definitely pay attention to this document.

ISO standardization as a key for development of your business

The introduction of international standards into the scientific and technological base of your organization will not only greatly facilitate the adaptation to the introduction of new technologies, but will also expand the possibilities of interaction at the international level. If your organization operates in more global markets, we recommend that you pay attention to ISO standards, but if your organization or business is limited to European markets, then it would be more reasonable to have standards adapted directly to this location and having all the necessary amendments in accordance with local laws and norms.
