Announcement of ANSI Procedural Revisions for Comment


New York, Oct 21, 2005

ANSI announces the following procedural changes for public review and comment:

  • ExSC 6538 – Appeals Fees
    This proposed revision to clauses 1.7 and 2.7 of the “ANSI Essential Requirements: Due process requirements for American National Standards” is intended to clarify the ANSI Executive Standards Council’s (ExSC’s) expectations with regard to appeals fees. It includes the reorganization of existing text and the introduction of new text.

  • ExSC 6561 - Balance
    This proposed revision to clause 2.3 Balance of the ANSI Essential Requirements: Due process requirements for American National Standards is intended to clarify the requirements relative to interest categories and the relationship between interest categories, i.e., that the interest categories definitions must be reliable, definitive and discreet. The proposal is not intended to limit the number of potential interest categories but to aid in the understanding of the requirements relative to American National Standards.

  • ExSC 6562 - Evidence of Consensus and Consensus Body Vote
    During the last year, the ANSI Executive Standards Council (ExSC) has discussed the current requirements contained in the “ANSI Essential Requirements: Due process requirements for American National Standards” with regard to consensus. Previously ExSC 6449, which addressed this issue, was announced for public comment; however, upon further discussion the ExSC agreed that it did not achieve the clarification desired and so it was withdrawn. The proposed revision below is intended to codify the requirement that ANSI-accredited standards developers include in their procedures how consensus will be determined with respect to a candidate American National Standard.

The text of the proposed revisions can be found in the November 21, 2005, Public Comment Deadline folder on ANSI Online. Comments with regard to this proposed revision should be submitted to psa@ansi.org or via fax to the Recording Secretary of the ANSI Executive Standards Council (ExSC) at (212) 840-2298. Mailed comments should be sent to ANSI, ExSC Recording Secretary, 25 West 43rd Street, 4th Floor, New York, NY 10036.
