A Terminology Standard is a Technical Standard that formally establishes a domain-specific terminology.

    • The primary types of technical standards are:
      • A standard specification is an explicit set of requirements for an item, material, component, system or service. It is often used to formalize the technical aspects of a procurement agreement or contract.[1] For example, there may be a specification for a turbine blade for a jet engine that defines the exact material and performance requirements.
      • A standard test method describes a definitive procedure that produces a test result. It may involve making a careful personal observation or conducting a highly technical measurement. For example, a physical property of a material is often affected by the precise method of testing: any reference to the property should therefore reference the test method used.
      • A standard practice or procedure gives a set of instructions for performing operations or functions. For example, there are detailed standard operating procedures for operation of a nuclear power plant.[2]
      • A standard guide is general information or options that do not require a specific course of action.
      • A standard definition is formally established terminology.
      • Standard units, in physics and applied mathematics, are commonly accepted measurements of physical quantities.
