Webinar: U.S. TAG Participants Sought for Potential New ISO Field of Activity on Wheeled Child Conveyances


08/11/2016

The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) will host a WebEx meeting on Thursday, August 18, 2016 at 10 a.m. ET for relevant U.S. stakeholders to discuss the possible formation of a U.S. Technical Advisory Group (US/TAG) to support U.S. national consensus-based participation in a new proposed field of activity on wheeled child conveyances, should the proposal be approved. As the U.S. member body to ISO, ANSI invites all relevant and interested stakeholders to participate.

As ANSI recently reported, the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) circulated a proposal for a new field of activity on wheeled child conveyances designed for the carriage of one or more children, i.e., strollers and carriages. Excluded from the proposal are toys, shopping carts, baby carriers fitted with wheels, motorized conveyances, and conveyances designed for children with special needs.

All interested stakeholders are invited to review the proposal, which includes listings of relevant standards as well as affected stakeholder categories that may benefit from or be impacted by the proposed deliverable.

Please submit comments to Steve Cornish, ANSI senior director of international policy (scornish@ansi.org), by close of business on Friday, August 26, 2016. Based on the input received, the ANSI ISO Council (AIC) will then be asked to approve an ANSI position and comments to be submitted to ISO before its October 5, 2016, deadline for voting on this proposal.
