Call for Participants in the 2003-2004 ANSI Survey on Standardization Activities

New York, Jan 05, 2004

The National Policy Committee (NPC) of the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) has announced that it is conducting a survey to identify ways in which ANSI and consortia can work together for the benefit of standards developers and the stakeholders they wish to serve. The survey has been issued to companies, individuals, and organizations involved in consortium-based standards development.

According to Stephen Oksala, chairman of the NPC, “This strengthened collaboration will be a positive step for organizations within the U.S. and around the globe.”

The survey is consistent with one of the goals identified within the National Standards Strategy for the United States (NSS) ( The NSS establishes a standardization framework based upon a set of strategic and tactical initiatives that can be used by all interests to meet national and individual organizational objectives.

“ANSI welcomes the opportunity to partner with standards setting organizations in all sectors,” said Anne Caldas, director of the ANSI procedures and administration department. Responses received are expected to provide a better understanding of the needs of the many and varied organizations involved in standardization. Aggregated replies will be compiled and presented in a summary format during 2004.

Any interested party may obtain the survey via ANSI Online at (keyword search "survey"). Responses will be accepted between January 1 and January 31, 2004, and should be returned via e-mail to
