Smart and Sustainable Cities Numerous standards exist for various areas under the umbrella of smart and sustainable cities. These include building standards, energy standards, wastewater standards, standards for intelligent transportation systems, electric vehicles and vehicle electronics, and more. Emerging standardization activities are exploring overarching areas such as key performance indicators for city services and quality of life, resilience, process management systems for municipal governance, information and communications technology aspects (sensor networks, data formats, communications between systems), etc. Additional standards will be added to this list as they are defined. For additional information, see the ANSI Network on Smart and Sustainable Cities.

ISO 18091:2014

Quality management systems - Guidelines for the application of ISO 9001:2008 in local government

The objective of ISO 18091:2014 is to provide local governments with guidelines for achieving reliable results through the application of ISO 9001:2008 on an integral basis. These guidelines do not, however, add, change or modify the requirements of ISO 9001:2008. All the guidelines indicated in ISO 18091:2014 are generic and applicable to all local governments, regardless of their type, size and product/service provided. The user can apply the guidance contained in ISO 18091:2014 as a whole or, in part, as necessary, to their maximum benefit.


ISO 37120:2014

Sustainable development of communities - Indicators for city services and quality of life

ISO 37120:2014 defines and establishes methodologies for a set of indicators to steer and measure the performance of city services and quality of life. It follows the principles set out and can be used in conjunction with ISO 37101:?, Sustainable development in communities ? Management systems ? General principles and requirements, when published, and other strategic frameworks. ISO 37120:2014 is applicable to any city, municipality or local government that undertakes to measure its performance in a comparable and verifiable manner, irrespective of size and location.


ISO/TR 37150:2014

Smart community infrastructures - Review of existing activities relevant to metrics

ISO/TR 37150:2014 provides a review of existing activities relevant to metrics for smart community infrastructures. In ISO/TR 37150:2014, the concept of smartness is addressed in terms of performance relevant to technologically implementable solutions, in accordance with sustainable development and resilience of communities, as defined in ISO/TC 268. ISO/TR 37150:2014 addresses community infrastructures such as energy, water, transportation, waste and information and communications technology (ICT). It focuses on the technical aspects of existing activities which have been published, implemented or discussed. Economic, political or societal aspects are not analyzed in ISO/TR 37150:2014. NOTE ISO/TR 37150:2014 is not a recommendation document for best practices. Although sustainability objectives have been considered, the main subject of ISO/TR 37150:2014 is the analysis of existing methodologies for smart community infrastructures.


ISO/TS 37151:2015

Smart community infrastructures - Principles and requirements for performance metrics

ISO/TS 37151:2015 gives principles and specifies requirements for the ╖ definition, ╖ identification, ╖ optimization, and ╖ harmonization of community infrastructure performance metrics, and gives recommendations for analysis, including ╖ smartness, ╖ interoperability, ╖ synergy, ╖ resilience, ╖ safety, and ╖ security of community infrastructures. Community infrastructures include, but are not limited to, energy, water, transportation, waste, and ICT. The principles and requirements of ISO/TS 37151:2015 are applicable to communities of any size sharing geographic areas that are planning, commissioning, managing, and assessing all or any element of its community infrastructures. However, the selection and the importance of metrics or (key) performance indicators of community infrastructures is a result of the application of ISO/TS 37151:2015 and depends on the characteristics of each community. In ISO/TS 37151:2015, the concept of smartness is addressed in terms of performance relevant to technologically implementable solutions, in accordance with sustainable development and resilience of communities as defined in ISO/TC 268.
