ANSI Opens Survey for U.S. Input on Upcoming ISO Strategic Plan

New York, Apr 17, 2009

The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) has announced that it will be seeking input from its members on its Strategic Plan for 2011-2015. As the U.S. national member body to ISO, the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) offers all interested U.S. stakeholders the opportunity to review the related consultation document from ISO and respond through an open survey conducted by the Institute.

The current ISO Strategic Plan was approved in 2004 in response to membership growth and expanded outreach to new categories of stakeholders. The ISO Strategic Plan 2005-2010 - Standards for a sustainable world proposed a global vision for ISO, seven key objectives with expected results and actions for their achievement, and a description of ISO’s added value. To examine the next five years, ISO has developed the document, Consultation for the ISO Strategic Plan 2011-2015, which has been made available for review and comment by national member bodies.

ANSI invites all interested U.S. stakeholders to submit feedback on the ISO consultation document through an online survey. While a number of issues and related specific questions are featured in the consultation document, respondents should feel free to comment on any aspect of ISO and its standards development.

Please coordinate internally to ensure that one response is received per organization. Comments will be accepted until June 5, 2009.
