How are IEC standards adopted as regional or national standards?

The ISO/IEC Guide 21-1 provides the methods for adoption of IEC International Standards as regional or national standards and includes a system for indicating the degree of correspondence so as to promote coherence in the way regional or national standards bodies adopt international standards and indicate the degree of correspondence with international standards. It applies equally to the adoption of other international normative and informative documents such as technical reports. Greater uniformity in the indication of both correspondence and deviations among countries will aid communication, avoid confusion and facilitate trade.
