About World Standards Week

ANSI’s World Standards Week is a premier annual gathering that brings together ANSI members and private- and public-sector stakeholders from across the standards and conformity assessment communities.

The WSW 2021 fall events will be held virtually on October 25-29, 2021. With a focus on creating increased opportunities for engagement, the fall events will include virtual networking, greater use of video, and more two-way dialogue between presenters and attendees. Events will include:

  • ANSI’s member forum and policy advisory groups
  • ANSI’s Annual Business Meeting and All-Member Networking Event
  • The USNC National Young and Emerging Professionals Program soft launch
  • A special half-day event on October 28, hosted in partnership with UL and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. The event will bring the standardization community together to share best practices and methodologies for measuring the overall health and safety impact of standards.
