Make double standards great again!
Smile | :)

But a lot of standards do have several standard numbers, because they have been developed in close cooperation of two or more standard organizations. Quite a few telecommunication standards have both an ISO number and an ITU "recommendation" number (like X.509). Some IEEE standards are identical to ISO standards. In Germany, DIN (eutsches Institut für Normung) is the German branch of ISO. They were very early with some standards (like DIN 45500 which all old-time hifi freaks know well) - parts of this was made into ISO standards with different numbers.

In a few cases, the standards have small "editorial" differences, such as whether the final part(s) are called an "appendix" or "annex". Or mandatory definition of certain terms such as MAY and MUST. There may be other formal requirements, such as ITU referring to specific regulatory units in the telecom world, which is against ISO principles, so those are replaced by terms like "the management organization" - not identifying a specific one. The technical contents of the standard is completely unaffected by these differences.

Sometimes, you may see national standards such as Norsk Standard 646 - NS 646 is identical to ISO 646 ("ASCII") but with an addendum defining its use in Norway. Fortunately, 646 was unused in the NS number series; in other cases, the NS number differs from the ISO number, for the same technical content. And for some standards, the English text isn't even translated to Norwegian for the NS version.
