Our Standards

Odette develops standards which help automotive industry companies overcome the constant challenges arising in their supply chain operations.

The great strength of our standards is that they are created by people who are the experts in their field and know the real needs of the companies they represent. They are regularly reviewed to ensure that they remain relevant in the ever-evolving automotive world and new ones are developed to meet fresh challenges as they arise.

We know, however, that the value of standards lies in wide-scale adoption, so we make them freely available to the whole community.
