Guided by the ANSI Board of Directors and informed by the ANSI National Policy Advisory Group, ANSI’s public policy and government affairs activities are intended to enable access and information exchange among the standards community and public-sector leaders, agencies, and legislators. The Government Member Forum serves as a focal point for discussion of government standards and conformity assessment interests as they relate to ANSI and our members.
In collaboration with organizations across sectors, ANSI works to foster understanding of the major role standards play in the international and domestic marketplace and the contribution the standards and conformity assessment communities make to the economy and the public as a whole. Informed by the work of the National Policy Advisory Group, ANSI develops public policy positions on issues that concern the standards community.
