Announcement of ANSI Procedural Revisions for Comment


New York, Jun 15, 2007

ANSI announces the following four procedural changes for public review and comment:

Comment deadline July 9, 2007

  • ExSC 6748ANSI Essential Requirements: Due process requirements for American National Standards (ANSI Essential Requirements)
  • This proposed revision to the ANSI Essential Requirements is intended to clarify the extension process with respect to American National Standards that are maintained under the continuous maintenance option.

  • ExSC 6763ANSI Essential Requirements
  • This proposed revision to the ANSI Essential Requirements is a further revision to ExSC 6646, which was announced for public review earlier in 2007. The ANSI Executive Standards Council (ExSC) has approved the text contained in ExSC 6646, but proposes the revision to clause 2.4.1 that replaces the word “could” with “would.” This single modification is the sole revision for which public comments are sought at this time.

    The text of all relevant documents can be found in the July 9, 2007, Public Comment Deadline folder on ANSI Online.

Comment deadline July 16, 2007
The following proposed revisions are intended to address, from a procedural perspective, the existence of the option for ANSI to approve a Partnership Standards Developing Organization (PSDO) agreement between an ANSI-Accredited Standards Developer and ISO.

Comments with regard to these proposed revisions should be submitted to psa@ansi.org or via fax to the Recording Secretary of the ANSI Executive Standards Council (ExSC) at 212-840-2298.

Effective July 2007, all comments received in connection with any proposed revisions to ANSI’s procedures will be made publicly available in the ANSI Online library one week after the close of the comment deadline. The ANSI ExSC will consider all public comments received by the comment deadline at its next regularly scheduled meeting. Shortly thereafter, all commenters will be provided with a written disposition of their respective comments.

Questions should be directed to psa@ansi.org.
