The TIC Industry

Evaluation of one of the oldest instincts of Mankind. We have come a long way from the time of the Hunter-Gatherer, who was trying to evaluate if something was worthy of picking up to the Era where people are flicking options on screens of smart devices.

It has been only a little over a century that we starting publishing documents (standards) which would define concepts of evaluation of what we consider of value. Standards defining performance or behavior provided the much needed quantification to help put a “value” to what we have considered worthy of buying or selling. The General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT) in 1947 created the real need to grow the boundaries of Standards.

The 21st Century is seeing the Testing, Inspection & Certification (TIC) sector becoming more organised. The sector which is still largely unorganized displays great profit margins in some spaces and has been catching the eye of the financial industry. It also has a very unique link to International Trade and inter country relationships.

“But the most interesting one is related to Innovation and Progress of Humanity.”
