The American Way Course

On December 8, ANSI will host The American Way: The American National Standard (ANS) Development Process. Participants will learn why U.S. voluntary consensus standards are important, discover ANSI's role in the U.S. standardization system, and get an overview of different types of accreditation.

The course is intended for staff from standards developing organizations who administer the American National Standards process. The course also provides a good starting point for those who are considering becoming an ANSI-accredited standards developer.

Participants will gain a better understanding of the following:

  • U.S. voluntary consensus standardization process
  • Accreditation process for developers of American National Standards (ANS)
  • ANS development process and procedures, and submittal of standards to ANSI for approval
  • ANS forms
  • Maintenance of accreditation requirements including the ANSI audit program, and how an audit can help accredited standards developers
  • The role and motivation of subject-matter experts in the development process
  • Importance of due process provisions within the ANS process and implementation options and requirements

Participants will also have an opportunity to learn effective ANS administration tips and techniques and other helpful guidance.

Those who register to attend must take the free prerequisite online course, An Introduction to Standards: Why, Where and How Are They Developed, and accompanying quiz.
