Which ISO standards are you referring to?
I know two businesses, where there is an ISO standard related to
the documentation process:
- ISO 6592, section 6 + Annex A, B and C for software
- ISO 9127 for software
- ISO 11014-1 for chemicals
but I don't know any general standards.
If you know other relevant ISO or other standards - general or
single business related - please let me know.
