ANSI Issues Response to CEN CENELEC White Paper


As coordinator of the U.S. standardization system, the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) has published today a response to a CEN CENELEC white paper entitled “Risks of mutual recognition of voluntary industry standards within the context of a future EU-US trade agreement (TTIP) and alternative approaches,” which was published in June 2015.

The CEN CENELEC paper raised a number of issues that ANSI and the broader U.S. standardization community strongly felt could benefit from further clarification.

ANSI’s response is available here.
