#13 Smart Cities: International Norms and Standards

As the smart cities become one of common goals for further spatial development of urban areas, the certain standardisation, definition and classification of this fairly new subject needed to emerge. In this article you will find current and most important standards focusing on smart city sector and organisations issuing them.

Fig. 1 Standardization efforts in Smart Cities


In 2014 organisations such as British Standards Institutions and International Organization for Standardisation created several documents regarding brigh spectrum of implementation the idea of smart cities, together with its theoretical understanding.

BSI is a global corporation and cofounder of ISO and is the biggest certifying organisation in the world. It focus lays on developing standards and provisions of services regarding those standards. It also issues PAS, Publically Available Specification, standard-like documents, created in a short time, mostly for urgent market needs.

Documents that sort, order and categorise procedures regarding development of smart cities:

BSI PAS 180: Smart Cities – Vocabulary

BSI PAS 181: Smart city framework – Guide

BSI PAS 182: Smart city concept model

PD 8100: Smart city overview

PD 8101: Smart cities. Guide to the role of the planning and development process

ISO 37120: Sustainable development of communities – Indicator for city services and quality of life

ISO 37121: Inventory and review of existing indicators on sustainable development
and resilience in cities

ISO 3701: Sustainable development in communities – Management systems- General principles and requirements

ISO 3712 – parameters that help cities in evaluating and measuring progress in enhancing quality of life and executing the idea of sustain city development

ISO 37150: Smart community infrastructures – Review of existing activities relevant
to metrics

Documents/organisations/directives that specify roles and importance of spatial and geoinformatic datas in building and developing smart cities:

ISO 9100

Open Geospatial Consortium

INSPIRE, European Union directive

IEC Standards

“IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission) is the world’s leading organization for the preparation and publication of International Standards for all electrical, electronic and related technologies.”
