The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) invites members to participate in the 2015 ISO Updates Course, now open for registration. The online course is required to comply to the ANSI Executive Standards Council (ExSC) requirement for training on new changes to the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) Directives, processes and procedures that are introduced each year. Training should be completed by March 1, 2016.
The ExSC recently determined that all U.S. individuals serving as Secretaries of ISO Technical Committees (TC), Subcommittees (SC), and Project Committees (PC), as well as Administrators of U.S. Technical Advisory Groups (U.S. TAGs) to ISO committees, are required to have appropriate training to serve in their roles.
The updates course is also recommended for U.S. individuals serving as chairs and convenors of ISO committees and working groups, as well as chairs of U.S. TAGs. The course is also relevant for those who serve as members of U.S. TAGs or as delegates and experts to ISO committee and working group meetings.
The course will provide an overview of changes to the new version of ISO Directives Part 1 and ISO Supplement, which was released in May 2015. The new version reflects a number of changes to how ISO committees conduct their work.
As the U.S. member body to ISO, ANSI provides the 2015 ISO Updates Course, open for registration by clicking here.
