Definition of ISO Unit in SAP
SAP uses internal units for measurement. To communicate with external systems, these internal units must be converted into the Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) standard.
ISO codes exist for standard measurement units, and are used for data exchange via EDI with external systems. To implement communication with external systems, ISO codes must be assigned to SAP internal units. (source)
