Announcement of ANSI Procedural Revisions for Comment


New York, Apr 10, 2006

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

  • ExSC 6589—Appeals Board Decision
    This proposed revision to the ANSI Appeals Board Operating Procedures is intended to clarify the criteria and process related to the existing reconsideration option.

  • ExSC 6592—Expedited Procedures for the National Adoption of an ISO standard
    This proposed revision to the ANSI Procedures for the National Adoption of ISO and IEC Standards as American National Standards recognizes that the original intent of the periodic review provision contained therein was to allow the maintenance cycle of an identical national adoption to reflect the ISO or IEC maintenance cycle, regardless of whether the sponsoring standards developer utilizes the “expedited” procedures detailed in clause 3.0.

The text of the proposed revisions can be found in the May 1, 2006, Public Comment Deadline folder on ANSI Online.

Comments with regard to these proposed revisions should be submitted by April 30, 2006, to psa@ansi.org or via fax (212.840.2298) to the Recording Secretary of the ANSI Executive Standards Council (ExSC). Mailed comments should be sent to ANSI, ExSC Recording Secretary, 25 West 43rd Street, 4th Floor, New York, NY 10036.
