Deadline Extended to February 29, 2004 for ANSI Consortia Survey on Standardization Activities


New York, Jan 30, 2004

The National Policy Committee (NPC) of the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) has extended the deadline for companies, individuals, and organizations involved in consortium-based standards development to respond to an informational survey on ways in which ANSI and consortia can work together for the benefit of standards developers and the stakeholders they wish to serve. Responses must be received by February 29, 2004.

“ANSI welcomes the opportunity to partner with standards setting organizations in all sectors,” said Anne Caldas, director of the ANSI procedures and administration department. Responses received are expected to provide a better understanding of the needs of the many and varied organizations involved in standardization. Aggregated replies will be compiled and presented in a summary format during 2004.

The survey is consistent with one of the goals identified within the National Standards Strategy for the United States (NSS) (www.ansi.org/nss). The NSS establishes a standardization framework based upon a set of strategic and tactical initiatives that can be used by all interests to meet national and individual organizational objectives.

Any interested party may obtain the survey via ANSI Online at www.ansi.org (keyword search "survey"). Responses should be returned via e-mail to psa@ansi.org.
