African Regional Organization for Standardization

An organization that promotes trade by and within Africa by encouraging greater standardization. The standards ARSO seeks to harmonize include agriculture, food products, engineering and textiles, among other things. ARSO believes that greater standardization will lead to more trade because consumers will have an objective rule against which to measure products.
