The ANSI Committee on Education (COE) oversees all Institute initiatives related to standards and conformity assessment education. The committee works with the entire standardization community to introduce the importance of standards to the academic community and to the public at large, and continually seeks out partnerships and opportunities to engage and inform new constituents of all ages. The COE typically meets twice per year.

The COE fulfills the objectives of the United States Standards Strategy and responds to other issues that may be delegated by the ANSI Board of Directors or Executive Committee, or suggested by the National Policy Advisory Group. It operates in accordance with the ANSI Committee on Education Operating Guidelines.
