The U.S. Celebration of World Standards Day (WSD) is an annual event that recognizes and honors the many contributions of the U.S. standards and conformity assessment community. U.S. activities are organized and hosted annually by the U.S. Celebration of WSD planning committee consisting of representatives from across the standards and conformity assessment community—and co-chaired by ANSI and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). The National Institute of Building Sciences (NIBS) is serving as the administrating organization for the 2024 U.S. Celebration of World Standards Day. WSD is a widely attended annual event that is co-sponsored and attended by federal government agencies.

Please note that WSD is separate from ANSI’s World Standards Week events, but held during the same timeframe.
