Participation in a number of specific activities overseen by ANSI are subject to assessment fees in addition to ANSI Membership dues. These activities include:
See the fee schedules for these activities below. (Note: USNC Premier Membership and participation in the IPRPAG also have additional fees.)
The national activity assessment supports the American National Standards (ANS) process infrastructure and is based on the total number of American National Standards sponsored by the standards developer; this fee includes the costs associated with the mandatory routine audit applicable to all ANSI-accredited standards developers.
There are two types of international assessments – each calculated separately – that are applied based on the following schedules in addition to the full member dues of relevant ANSI Members.
The first component is applied to ANSI members that hold ISO, IEC, and/or ISO/IEC JTC 1 secretariats. Assessments are based upon the number of ISO, IEC, and/or JTC 1 Technical Committee (TC) and/or Subcommittee (SC) secretariats administered.
The second component is applied to members that administer U.S. Technical Advisory Groups (TAGs). The assessments are based on the number of ISO, IEC, and/or JTC 1 TCs and/or SCs for which the organization administers a U.S. TAG (i.e., “P” memberships). Organizations that administer ISO and ISO/IEC JTC 1–related U.S. TAGs will be assessed an ISO-specific program fee of $575 per participating (“P”) membership (based on the number of ISO TCs and/or SCs for which the organization administers a U.S. TAG).
Organizations that administer over 10 P-memberships or secretariats should contact Sara Desautels, director, ISO P-membership services (email@example.com), for more information concerning international assessment fees.
