ANSI Welcomes New Members


New York, Jan 30, 2004

The American National Standards Institute (ANSI), a non-profit organization that administers and coordinates the U.S. voluntary standardization and conformity assessment system, proudly welcomes the new members that joined the Federation during January 2004. The organizations joined the Institute under a new market-based membership structure that ties investment directly to the level of service and involvement dictated by the specific and unique needs of each member.

The new members include:

“ANSI membership provides maximum flexibility and value," said John Kalemkerian, the Institute's vice president of membership, communications and education. “Members choose the level of access they desire and select from an extensive collection of service, benefits and ‘a la carte’ options."

Comprised of businesses, professional societies and trade associations, standards developers, government agencies, and consumer and labor organizations, the ANSI Federation represents the diverse interests of more than 120,000 entities and 3.2 million professionals worldwide. ANSI’s mission is to enhance U.S. global competitiveness and the American quality of life by promoting, facilitating, and safeguarding the integrity of the voluntary standardization system.

ANSI is the official U.S. representative to the International Accreditation Forum (IAF), the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and, via the U.S. National Committee, the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC). ANSI currently has offices in New York City and Washington, DC.
