The ANSI Executive Standards Council (ExSC) is charged with the review and accreditation of a proposed U.S. TAG and TAG Administrator. ANSI normally looks to the body that develops national standards in a particular standards area to serve as the U.S. TAG Administrator. The makeup of U.S. TAGs may include participants from companies, technical and trade organizations, government agencies, academia, consumers, and individuals.
Similarly, the ExSC makes all decisions concerning the assignment of U.S. TAG Administrators for all U.S. TAGs, including the granting, continuance, or withdrawal of assignment to an external organization, whenever reasonably possible, or to ANSI.
Multiple Administrators: Assignment of multiple administrators is avoided wherever possible, but may be authorized under exceptional circumstances by the ExSC. Co-administrators shall agree in writing among themselves on appropriate procedures for implementing administrative responsibilities. This agreement shall be on file with ANSI. To avoid the need for ANSI to deal with multiple organizations, one of the organizations shall be designated as the party with whom ANSI shall interface.
