What is meant by “standards”?

Question: What is meant by “standards”? Does this include technical development standards or best practice standards by sector?

Answer: Standards refers generally to web standards which are defined as a formal set of standards and technical specifications used to define aspects of the world wide web. These are best-practice standards used by organizations to build web sites and web applications (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Web_standards). We provide examples during the submission process such as Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 or standards listed on W3C.
