This paper discusses the changes in the 2016 (third edition) of International Standard ISO 1. While the value of the standard reference temperature remains unchanged at 20 °C, the important definitions for the “reference temperature” and “standard reference temperature,” absent in prior editions, are now defined, with the latter exclusively reserved for the assignment of the internationally agreed upon temperature of 20 °C. The scope of the revised Standard has been carefully refined and made more explicit. This, together with other clarifications and improvements, has eliminated the ambiguities associated with specifications at non-standard reference temperatures and allows, if needed, different reference temperatures to be associated with different properties of a workpiece. The relationship between ISO 1 and dimensional measurements is also discussed and clarified. In this paper, we discuss the motivation for these changes and present several issues debated during the revision process for the benefit of future standards committees that might study this topic.
