Definitions for "Standards"
Standards” cover many aspects of interchange for model railroading. The DCC “Standards” are only a small part of the NMRA's “Standards Program”.  The DCC standards are a small part of the industry norms and practices that make up what we know as DCC.
These involve comparison with accepted norms, such as are set by regulatory bodies.
A norm or criterion that is stated in order to clearly specify what is acceptable and what is unacceptable practice. Conformity with standards is usually a condition of licensure, accreditation or membership.

You will often hear people referring to “standards” when talking about videoconferencing. Standards are simply the technical specifications that underlies videoconferencing. H.320 is the name of the standard that applies to videoconferencing over ISDN. H.323 refers to videoconferencing over computer networks including LANs and the Internet.
Efforts to create wide use of specific protocols so software from different vendors can interoperate more easily, particularly within a vertical industry. Standards bodies or efforts often work more slowly than entrepreneurial companies in setting up interoperable terms of trade. Many e-commerce standards today are based on XML (eXtensible Markup Language), which provides a flexible way to describe product specifications or business terms. Relevant b2b e-commerce standards efforts include BizTalk, promoted by Microsoft so different industries can communicate online with each other; Open Buying on the Internet (OBI), overseen by trade group CommerceNet; and RosettaNet, an effort within the computer manufacturing industry.

Standards are publicly agreed ways of doing something so that things will work together. Many of them are statutory (electricity supply) or so common we don't think about them - three pin plugs in the UK and 240v 50Hz electric currents. Others describe procedures such as ISO 9001 for quality control. International standards are agreed by the International Organisation for Standards (ISO), which was set up by international treaty in 1947. Besides standards there are also specifications. Some of these will go on to become standards. Examples would include HTML 4.01 (the standard is still at HTML 1.0) and IMS.
Here when we refer to standards, we refer to the standards for skills. In the UK, these are called National Occupational Standards (See NOSs). Many people also refer to standards as the standards to define various managment systems, eg. ISO 14001 is a standard for environmental management systems.
Guidelines, either formal or informal, which indicate the types of technology available for purchase that will be supported by the county.

Standards are materials containing a known concentration of an analyte. They provide a reference to determine unknown concentrations or to calibrate analytical instruments. The accuracy of an analytical measurement is how close a result comes to the true value. Determining the accuracy of a measurement usually requires calibration of the analytical method with a known standard. This is often done with standards of several concentrations to make a calibration or working curve. A primary standard is a reagent that is extremely pure, stable, has no waters of hydration, and has a high molecular weight. A secondary standard is a standard that is prepared in the laboratory for a specific analysis. It is usually standardized against a primary standard.
