ANSI Online Relaunch Set for January 2, 2003

New York, Nov 26, 2002

The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) has had a presence on the Internet for many years, utilizing the speed and convenience of electronic communication to provide current, practical and powerful standards-relevant information and services. On January 2, 2003, ANSI members and the World Wide Web community will see the results of a year-long overhaul of ANSI Online, redesigned to bring greater benefit and services to all visitors to the Institute's website.

Besides a new look and feel and greatly improved navigation, the renovation will add both functionality and content. A new document library and archive system featuring excellent search and browsing capabilities allows for ANSI members or the general public, as appropriate, to retrieve electronic copies of meeting minutes, reports or other publications at their convenience. This is enabled by an improved security system facilitating access to critical information for the designated representatives of ANSI members and members of certain ANSI boards, committees or forums. A new voting module within the Members Only sections will expedite voting and comment submission procedures.

"Given the ever-increasing importance of the Internet as an information resource, the entire ANSI staff has been devoting time and effort to the development of a new version of the ANSI Online website," said Dr. Mark W. Hurwitz, ANSI president and CEO. "We look forward to its launch and the enhanced functionality it will offer ANSI's constituents and members."

Site access information (including individual user identification codes and passwords) will be sent via e-mail to all registered ANSI member contacts in mid-December. For more information, or to arrange access for additional member representatives, please e-mail ANSI member services at

The new site will go live on January 2, 2003 at
