'Tis the Season to Celebrate Standards! ANSI Releases New Holiday Animation


Video Showcases the Critical Role of Voluntary Standards in Everyday Life

The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) is sending out some good cheer - and standards education - through a new animation that highlights more than 40 American National and International Standards that support a safe and satisfying holiday season. From Christmas lights, to air travel, to Santa's entryway of choice - the chimney - products, processes, and systems of every kind are guided by standards for safety, performance, and interoperability.

"Standards Make the Holidays Sparkly and Safe," a two-minute musical animation, is posted on ANSI's YouTube page, and can be viewed and linked to from Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, and Google . ANSI has also added the video and an updated PDF poster version to its growing K-12 Student Resources page at - part of an ongoing effort to educate a younger and broader audience on the critical roles of standards and conformance in all facets of everyday life.

"A Standards Celebration for the Holidays," can also be viewed on ANSI's YouTube and Student pages.

ANSI invites everyone from the standardization community - and every community - to enjoy the videos, share the links with colleagues, friends, and family, and have a safe and joyful holiday.
