The ANSI National Policy Committee (NPC) is an Institute policy committee that reports to the Executive Committee of the ANSI Board of Directors. The following excerpt from the ANSI By-Laws describes this committee and its role:

Section 6.03 National Policy Committee.

The National Policy Committee shall be responsible for broad-based policy and position decisions regarding national standards issues and government relations and public policy issues (except as otherwise delegated by the Board to another body or to the extent such decision would significantly change or affect the strategic direction of the Institute or the federation)

Reporting to the NPC are the following Institute program oversight committees:

The NPC is also responsible for reviewing and formulating ANSI positions in connection with ANSI government-related activities. In addition to activities related to Congress, federal agencies and state and local governments, the NPC is responsible for formulating and approving ANSI's role in connection with outside organizations and coalitions which may be useful in achieving ANSI’s objectives.
