What is the Sharing Economy?

The Sharing Economy is an economic model where platforms enable providers and users to exchange products and assets. It seeks to bring under-utilized resources to market and supports 7 United Nations’ Sustainability Goals by brokering an exchange of resources.


What we do?

We develop standards to promote and grow the Sharing Economy worldwide. In 2021, we published the International Standard “Sharing Economy — General Principles” (ISO 42500). This articulates the key concepts and overarching principles that apply to all applications of the Sharing Economy.In 2022,, we published “Sharing Economy — General Trustworthiness and Safety Requirements for Digital Platforms” (ISO/DTS 42501) and “Sharing Economy — Guidelines for Provider Verification on Digital Platforms” (ISO/DTS 42502) which aim to protect users, providers and platforms.

At present, we are developing ISO/AWI 42503 Sharing economy — Framework for implementation and ISO/AWI TR 42504 Sharing economy — Illustrative examples of provider verification on digital platforms.


Who we are?

Technical Committee 324 (TC 324) is the official group of Sharing Economy experts who develop global standards for the International Organization for Standardization (ISO).  Our members include Sharing Economy businesses, academics, NGOs, national standards bodies, and government agencies. We are dedicated to promoting the Sharing Economy and thereby advancing UN Sustainable Development Goals through worldwide standards.
