Membership Orientations

You can participate directly in many ways, and your time spent will be richly rewarded!

There is a lot written about ANSI and its role leading the United States in international standardization – but there's no better way to learn how you can benefit from working with ANSI than by talking with us. ANSI encourages you to take the first step to see what you are missing, and, more importantly, to find areas where we can work effectively together.

International Activity Assessment

The international assessment has two components, each calculated separately, and is applied in addition to the full member dues of relevant members. The first component is applied to ANSI members that hold ISO, IEC, and/or 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 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 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 Technical Committees (TCs) and/or Subcommittees (SCs) for which the organization administers a US/TAG). Organizations that administer over 10 P Memberships or Secretariats should contact Sara Desautels, Director, ISO – P-Membership Services, ( for more information concerning international assessment fees.
