From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (30 December 2018) :

  standard
  
      Standards are necessary for interworking,
     portability, and reusability.  They may be de facto
     standards for various communities, or officially recognised
     national or international standards.
  
     Andrew Tanenbaum, in his Computer Networks book, once said,
     "The nice thing about standards is that there are so many of
     them to choose from", a reference to the fact that competing
     standards become a source of confusion, division,
     obsolescence, and duplication of effort instead of an
     enhancement to the usefulness of products.
  
     Some bodies concerned in one way or another with computing
     IAB+({RFC">standards are IAB ({RFC and STD), ISO, ANSI, DoD,
     ECMA, IEEE, IETF, OSF, W3C.
