Perhaps he could share his insights in a post to this thread?

Could you please drop him an email (an email from me is more likely to

"140 million CHF per year is
the estimated cost for the operation

36 million CHF represents
the operational cost of the ISO
Central Secretariat financed
53% through membership fees
47% through sales of publications and
other income from services"
