Abstract: This textbook is the third &quot;Education Guideline&quot; produced with the funding provided for the APEC Strategic Standards and Conformance Education Program. The first Education Guideline, &quot;Case Studies of How to Plan and Implement Standards Education Programs and Strategic Curriculum Model&quot;, was published in March 2008. The second Education Guideline, &quot;Strategy for Education and Outreach on Standards, Conformity Assessment, and Technical Regulations&quot;, was published in July 2009. The objective of this third guideline, &quot;Standardization: Fundamentals, Impacts, and Business Strategy&quot;, is to provide a common reference textbook on standardization for the graduate program in higher education in the APEC region. This textbook can also be used in the senior level of the undergraduate program as well as professional training for business managers and government officials. This textbook is an outcome of the APEC project TI20/2008T jointly funded by the APEC and Korean Agency for Technology and Standards (KATS). The project of developing this textbook was proposed and managed by the Korean Standards Association (KSA). Since there are few textbooks on standardization, individual economies particularly developing economies were faced with the challenging task of developing teaching materials due to the lack of experiences and resources. Moreover, individual developments may cause the overlapping consumption of resources in fulfillment of the same goal. In this sense, we believe that the development of this teaching material will not only enable members to save time and efforts in the process but also build the fundamental bases for future education on standardization in the region, one that will increase public awareness in companies and public authorities in member economies in addition to universities; thus contributing to trade facilitation in our region.
