The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) wishes to remind all ANSI-Accredited U.S. Technical Advisory Group (TAG) administrators to the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) that the procedural compliance form recently issued via email must be completed by March 15, 2012.

"By seeking and maintaining ANSI-accredited status, an organization chooses to publicly commit to an open, equitable, and accessible consensus process that ensures due process and benefits the public interest," explained Lane Hallenbeck, ANSI vice president of accreditation services. "The Compliance Form online survey is designed to facilitate the annual compliance notification process."

Note:A brief webinar to review the procedural compliance form will be held Wednesday, February 15, at 1:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m. ET. Register here.

Please note that the 2012 edition of the ANSI Procedures for U.S. Participation in the International Activities of ISO contains one revision to clause Transfer of U.S. TAG Administrator. ANSI-Accredited U.S. TAG administrators are asked to review the ANSI International Procedures and submit the ANSI procedural compliance form.

If necessary, TAG administrators may submit revised procedures for re-accreditation to the ANSI PSA department ([email protected]). Revised procedures are to be submitted in strike-through and underline format with an explanation of all changes.

Questions about the survey or the ANSI International Procedures may be sent to ANSI's PSA department ([email protected]).
