Almost Universal Standards

Inspired by this thread
, where it was stated by the DHS that '"international standards are not necessarily applicable" to the US' I was wondering, what things have international standards which are ignored by one country.
I'm thinking of things like the metric system, famously used by everyone except the US and Burma. Are there other similar cases?
