I have been to no avail for months if not years now to find out where the number 16949 came from or how it was derived.

It is a silly question but it is a bet that no one has been able to win.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. A fun topic if any thing.

This has come up in a couple of threads, but I can't remember which threads and I couldn't find it in a quick search, but essentially no one knows as far as I can tell.

16949 came from....

The 16949 is a sequential numbering meaning there was a 16948 before this one. I do not know all of the standars but a great many of them are sector/industry specific based off of ISO 9000. Hope this helps to answer that question. :)

I believe you've asked this question in at least 3 different threads now. :frust:
In another thread I linked to a post with an email from someone at ISO that gave a pretty good answer. It's pretty close to what Sean said above. Here's my take on it. They are just assigned sequentially, exept that some blocks of numbers are reserved by some technical committees. Also, many numbers aren't used because a standard was proposed, assigned a number, but never approved. If you really want to see what all of the standards are go to the ISO website and do a search. Here's a linky to the ISO standards search page:
http://www.iso.org/iso/en/Standards_Search.StandardsQueryForm

Doing just a quick search for 169* in the keyword field shows 17 released standards that are in the 16900 range:
