Preliminary Membership Roster Announced for ANSI Homeland Security Standards Panel

Planning continues and interest builds for new group

Washington, DC, Apr 03, 2003

The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) announced today that more than 125 industry, government, professional societies, trade associations, standards developers, and consortia groups have registered as members of the ANSI-sponsored Homeland Security Standards Panel (HSSP).

Established in February 2003, the ANSI-HSSP serves as a cross-sectoral coordinating body for the development and enhancement of Homeland Security and emergency preparedness standards. It promotes a positive, cooperative partnership between the public and private sectors.

Organizations now registered as ANSI-HSSP members expressed their interest during an information gathering survey conducted in February. Many of these organizations are already working closely with the Department of Homeland Security and other agencies on specific standards projects -- this effort will facilitate information on and coordination of those efforts.

“ANSI is very pleased with the responses that have been received thus far,” said Dr. Mark W. Hurwitz, ANSI president and CEO. “We received a broad-based reply to our survey and are receiving new membership requests every day.”

Organizations interested in joining the ANSI-HSSP, or those who wish to submit comments or clarification, should contact the ANSI-HSSP secretary, Matthew Deane (E: mdeane@ansi.org; tel: 212.642.4992).
