Consumer Voices Matter!

Consumer involvement in standards settings is critical to help improve the safety of products—from toys to household appliances—that people rely on every day. Thousands of volunteers who are experts in their respective fields help develop product standards that are aimed at reducing and preventing injuries. Likewise, consumers who share their experiences and knowledge as part of the standards development process can help make products, processes, and services better and safer.

Check out why consumers matter on ANSI’s Consumers and Standards webpage, featuring Q&A’s with leading consumer advocates, ways to get involved and get support, and more.
