ISO Standards

ISO Standards

The International Organization for Standardization is a collective group of international representatives that agree upon various standards for numerous organizations worldwide. With relation to odour, ISO 13301 was initiated to provide a set of guidelines and procedures on the topic of odour. ISO provides specific guidelines on:
• Obtaining data on the detection of chemical stimuli that evoke responses to odour, flavour and taste by a 3-AFC (three alternative forced choice) procedure;
• The processing of the data to estimate the value of a threshold and its error bounds, and other statistics related to the detection of the stimulus.
The set of standards encompass the sensitivities of many groups of people around the world, taking into consideration age, gender, physiological condition, disease, administration of drugs, and ambient conditions of sensitivities.
