AIC Operational Procedures
The members of the AIC possess strong personal knowledge of and are employed by
ANSI members that have strong interests/participation in ISO standardization
activities and related conformity assessment. These individuals, with support
from others in their organizations as necessary, have the appropriate knowledge
and experience to participate in decision making on ANSI positions related to a
broad range of ISO policy issues, including but not limited to:
- strategic planning visions and efforts;
- support for developing countries.
Ideally, the AIC members represent a balance of interests from the four ANSI
membership categories (industry, organizations, government and consumers), and
a range of technical subject expertise.
