Objectives & Scope
The International Conformity Assessment Committee (ICAC) serves as the ANSI-Accredited U.S. Technical Advisory Group (TAG) to the International Organization for Standardization Conformity Assessment Committee (ISO CASCO). ISO CASCO writes standards for the effective operation of conformity assessment bodies and activities. ISO CASCO also provides policy recommendations to the ISO Council on conformity assessment matters.
As an ANSI-Accredited U.S. TAG, the ICAC develops U.S. consensus positions in response to ISO CASCO ballots and requests for comments, appoints U.S. experts to ISO CASCO Working Groups, and coordinates participation at annual ISO CASCO plenary meetings and other ISO CASCO activities.
