Conclusion

From the Paper:

"ISO's activities are based on the democratic principle of equal footing. Each member country of the ISO, regardless of its size or strength of its economy, has one vote and equal influence on the direction of ISO's strategic plans. Every ISO member is provided the right to suggest the development of any standard which it considers to be important for its economy ("Overview of the ISO System" 2008).
"ISO is a non-governmental organization and has no legal authority to enforce the implementation of its standards. The ISO standards are adopted voluntarily by the member countries as part of their regulatory or legislative framework although, at times, certain ISO standards (e.g. ISO 9000--the standard for quality management systems) may become a 'market requirement' due to their widespread adoption (Ibid.)"
