  78. ISO 24516-1:2016 - result of a process [adapted from ISO 9000:2005]. Service is the result of at least one activity necessarily performed at the interface between the provider of the service and, in the first place, its user and, in the second place, a stakeholder. The word “service” in common English can also refer to the entity providing the actions related to the subject in question, as is implicit in such phrases as “bus service”, “police service”, “fire service” and “water or wastewater service”. In this context and usage, “service” implies the entity that is delivering the service, e.g. “the public transport of passengers”, “the provision of public security”, “fire protection and response”, and “delivering drinking water or collecting wastewater”. If “service” can be understood in this way, “water service” becomes synonymous with “water utility”; hence in this document, in order to avoid confusion, only the definition in 3.19 applies.
