A standard should have been approved by a certain standards body that
represents most of the players. Like ISO, national standard bodies, or
one of the several industry consortiums.

Something by governmental agencies is the thing. There has also been a
trans-Arab standards body ones, who did some interesting work on
creating two-letter Arabic codes for countries of the world. I can't
remember the name, but I believe it is not active anymore.

For individual countries' standardization organizations, please see
<http://www.iso.org/iso/en/aboutiso/isomembers/MemberCountryList.MemberCountryList>. For example, Algeria's is:

Institut algérien de normalisation
5 et 7 rue Abou Hamou Moussa (ex-rue Daguerre)
