Usage notes[edit]

A body or organization that dictates standards does not exist to confer details about a single standard. Standard as an adjective generally refers to a specific version of a standard issued by a standards institution; that standard version itself will actually be a list of many individual standards. For example, ANSI Standard MUMPS refers to the 1995 MUMPS programming language specification issued by the American National Standards Institute, a standards organization. 1995 MUMPS standard specifies many standards that a programming language must adhere to, to be legitimately recognised as "standard MUMPS."
