The problem with the ISO body is its lack of accountability. They can create a private blockchain with only themselves and fellow organisations as the “permitted validators.” That will include, of course, ISO and BSI. Both of these organisations hide their true motives behind the disingenuous claim that they are “private, not for profit” organizations, so the average member of the public will confuse them with “charities” or “NGO’s” doing good works.
In the same way that the ISO makes it impossible for standards users to participate directly in standards development, they will make it impossible for users to participate in their blockchain applications.
If the ISO is allowed to dominate such blockchain rollouts for the quality profession or international standards, they will ensure its eventual corruption. Instead, open source blockchains must be utilised in the quality profession, and most especially to validate ISO 9001 certificates, ISO audit results and more. It should not be left to the same group of clandestine members.
