In an announcement issued earlier today to ANSI members, the Institute’s leadership has invited contributions for the U.S. position on ISO Horizon 2010, a long-range strategic planning initiative of the International Organization for Standardization (ISO).

According to ISO Secretary-General Alan Bryden, the initiative will take account of "market and societal trends, and input from a broad base of stakeholders, including those represented by ISO’s members and by international defin[e] a clear, rational and well-planned path forward for ISO in the years ahead."

All ISO members are expected to provide a summary of the input expressed by their various groups of stakeholders to encompass a consolidated national view. The ANSI ISO Council is developing U.S. input to be submitted to ISO.

ANSI constituents are asked to consider the ISO Horizon 2010 document and return to ANSI the Call for Comments form by close of business on Friday, August 15, 2003 at the latest.

“This initiative provides ANSI and its members with an outstanding and significant opportunity to shape ISO’s strategic directions for the remainder of this decade,” said Dr. Mark. W. Hurwitz, ANSI president and CEO.
