Interested in Contributing to International Standardization Activities? Check out ANSI’s New FAQ Page on U.S. Participation in ISO!


The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) is pleased to announce the availability of a new resource: FAQs on U.S. participation in the International Organization for Standardization (ISO).

As the U.S. member of ISO, ANSI accredits U.S. Technical Advisory Groups (TAGs) to serve as national mirror committees to ISO Technical Committees (TCs), Subcommittees (SCs), and Project Committees (PCs) developing standards. ANSI-accredited U.S. TAGs are comprised of relevant experts from a range of stakeholder categories who work together to develop U.S. consensus positions on activities and ballots of a specific ISO committee.

To help make U.S. participation as robust and effective as possible, ANSI has compiled a list of frequently asked questions that offer a wealth of information for U.S. TAG members, leaders, and other stakeholders. Questions cover accessing, voting on, and commenting on ISO committee documents and ballots; U.S. experts joining ISO Working Groups (WGs); U.S. TAG members attending ISO committee meetings; and more.

If you have additional questions that are not covered in the FAQ, please reach out to ANSI's ISO Team at [email protected]. For general questions about ANSI and standardization, see Standards FAQs.
