The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) will host a one-day seminar on Tuesday, December 8, from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. in ANSI's New York City office.

Participants will learn about:

  • 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.
