ANSI Commitment to Quality Continues with ISO 9001


New York, Nov 15, 2005

The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) celebrated a year-long process of self-assessment and continuous improvement today as part of its goal to self-declare conformance to ISO 9001:2000, the globally accepted quality management system standard set by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO).

ANSI president and CEO Mark W. Hurwitz commended the ANSI staff and congratulated members of the Institute’s quality committee during a signing ceremony earlier today in the ANSI operations office in New York. ANSI recently completed a comprehensive round of internal audits, corrective action and management reviews to demonstrate to the Institute’s stakeholders its operational abilities and enhancement of customer satisfaction.

“By signing this Declaration of Conformance, we are confirming ANSI’s commitment to excellence in fulfilling the Institute’s mission through the implementation of ISO 9001,” said Hurwitz. “This is a significant and well-recognized demonstration of our dedication to meeting the needs of members and constituents.”

The ISO 9000 family of standards has earned a global reputation as the basis for establishing quality management systems and is implemented in 154 countries worldwide.
