The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) opened registration today for its workshop on global supply chain security for microelectronics standardization, being held on behalf of the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD). The workshop will take place on July 27–29 at the headquarters of Booz Allen Hamilton, 8283 Greensboro Dr., McLean, VA. While in-person participation is strongly encouraged, remote participation is available. Advance registration is requested by July 20.

Request for Information
The workshop will assist DoD in gathering and assessing information regarding relevant standardization activities to fulfill its mandate under Section 224 of the FY20 National Defense Authorization Act requiring that DoD microelectronics products and services meet trusted supply chain and operational security standards. In preparation, ANSI is issuing a Request for Information (RFI) about published industry consensus standards, standards activities underway, or other relevant guidance documents. Standards development organizations (SDOs) and others are invited to share their portfolios of relevant work by completing and returning the RFI spreadsheet to Christine Bernat (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Jim McCabe (email@example.com) by July 15, 2022. The RFI includes instructions and additional context, as well as information previously collected/captured by ANSI staff.
“ANSI looks forward to receiving information from the standardization community to increase awareness about standards that will help to ensure the security of global supply chains for microelectronics. Together, SDOs, industry experts, and the federal government can develop a toolkit which advances this critical technology,” said S. Joe Bhatia, ANSI president and CEO.
