The regular use of traditional cookstoves and open fires to prepare meals has been linked to millions of annual injuries and deaths worldwide, demonstrating the pressing need for effective criteria for clean, safe, and efficient cookstoves. ISO's new TC will provide an opportunity for governments, industry, and organizations around the world to become involved in the process of designing, implementing, and updating standards dealing with this important topic.
During the webinar, ANSI staff will discuss the critical role played by U.S. TAGs to ISO TCs and will present information on the formation, accreditation, and operation of TAGs, in addition to information regarding the proposed TAG to the new ISO TC on cookstoves.
