ISO 9995

ISO/IEC 9995 "Information technology -- Keyboard layouts for text and office systems" (en français : Technologies de l'information -- Disposition des claviers conçus pour la bureautique) is a standard defining layouts of computer keyboards. The standard has several parts as of 2015: 9 active and one draft; another one was withdrawn in 2009 (apparently merged into another).

ISO/IEC 9995 defines a keyboard as having three groups of key assignments:

  • Group 1 is the basic layer with a base and shift (lower and upper case)
  • Group 2 is the national layer with a base and shift. There is a locking shift to access this.
  • Group 3 allows for supplemental characters to be entered. This is a single plane and uses a non-locking shift.
