In response to a proposal of “Early-Stage Standardization” by the ISO/IEC Presidents’ Advisory Board on Technological Trends, the Technical Committee ISO/TC 206 on Fine Ceramics was established in 1992. The scope of ISO/TC 206 is a standardization in the field of fine ceramic materials and products in all forms: powders, monoliths, coatings and composites, intended for specific functional applications including mechanical, thermal, chemical, electrical, magnetic, optical and combinations thereof. The term “fine ceramics” is defined as “a highly engineered, high performance, predominantly nonmetallic, inorganic material having specific functional attributes”. A summary overview is given of membership, organization structure, work program and future work of ISO/TC 206.
