In 2016 the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) has published ISO 17034:2016 on the general requirements for the competence of reference material producers (RMPs), superseding ISO Guide 34:2009. The major changes were now summarised in a scientific publication, written by JRC colleagues and ISO representatives.

The need for an International Standard arose as several accreditation bodies could not accredit to a guide, at all, while in other countries ISO Guide 34 could only serve as accreditation standard in combination with ISO/IEC 17025.
