    ISO is an independent, non-governmental international organization with a membership of 164 national standards bodies. Through its members, it brings together experts to share knowledge and develop voluntary, consensus-based, market relevant International Standards that support innovation and provide solutions to global challenges. ISO standards are developed by groups of experts from all over the world, that are part of larger groups called technical committees. These experts negotiate all aspects of the standard or guideline, including its scope, key definitions and content. ISO activities, standards, and guidelines are becoming more relevant due to the increasing number of studies, surveys, and editorials highlight experimental and computational reproducibility and replication issues that appear to pervade most areas of modern science.
     
    TC201 Scope:
    Standardization in the field of surface chemical analysis. Surface chemical analysis includes analytical techniques in which beams of electrons, ions, neutral atoms or molecules, or photons are incident on the specimen material and scattered or emitted electrons, ions, neutral atoms or molecules, or photons are detected. It also includes techniques in which probes are scanned over the surface and surface-related signals are detected.
