Step 8: ANSI Board of Standards Review (BSR) Decision
Once an ANSI-Accredited Standards Developer (ASD) submits a BSR-9 form and supporting documentation, the ANSI Board of Standards Review (BSR) reviews evidence of consensus and decides whether or not to approve the proposed draft document as an American National Standard (ANS). ASDs (and public commenters) have the right to appeal the BSR decision
Here’s what you do:
During the course of the review, you may be asked to respond to questions or provide additional documentation to the BSR before its decision is made.
Once the BSR has made its decision, ANSI will issue written notification of whether the ANS was approved to you and to all those on record as concluding the procedural appeals process at the ASD level.
Notice of the decision is then published in Standards Action.
If your standard is not approved, you may appeal the decision to the ANSI BSR (and subsequently to the ANSI Appeals Board if necessary), in accordance with ANSI's appeals process.
