What is standardization?
Standardization is an activity that resulted several years ago from an inherent need to exchange goods and services in various fields such as the scientific, technical or economic sectors. Standardization brings great benefits to society, as it facilitates the adaptation of processes and services and prevents potential problems in trade or technological development. This public activity is coordinated through Standardization Organizations that reach agreements in documents known as 'standards'.
What is the purpose of standardization?
The purpose of these standards is to establish a basis for the management between companies, the services they offer and the manufacture of quality products. It also serves as a roadmap for consumers because it becomes their guarantee of quality by offering them total market transparency and basic standards that they know the products and services they use must comply with.
In summary, the benefits of the standardization process are the following:
- They guarantee the quality of products or services for users.
- Uniformity of criteria between companies
- Eliminate trade barriers
- They look after the interests of consumers
- Efficient control of natural resources
What does standardization mean for the irrigation sector?The Ministry of Agriculture has made large investments in recent years in irrigation infrastructures with the aim of increasing crop yields and updating the system in Spain, since the constant lack of water in this country becomes an obstacle to the activity. Standardization in this field ensures quality in the execution of irrigation works; therefore, in July 2020 the collaboration agreement was signed between the Ministry and UNE for the creation of the Technical Committee for Standardization AEN/CTN318 Irrigation.
Other benefits brought by the signing of this Standardization agreement in the irrigation sector are:
- Optimizing production
- Optimization of water resources
- Avoid desertification
- Crop control
- Improving the creation of irrigation communities
- Centralizing resources
- Reuse of water
