How Can Consumers Contribute to Standards Development? Join ANSI’s October Consumer Safety Webinar


Free Webinar on October 17

Consumers are critical to improving the safety of products—from toys to household appliances—that we all rely on, every day! Find out how consumers can make a difference in standards development in the American National Standards Institute's (ANSI) free Consumer Safety Central Webinar on Tuesday, October 17, 2023, at 2:00-3:00 p.m. ET.

The webinar is part of a series of bimonthly Consumer Safety Central webinars held by ANSI, in an effort to bring awareness to the importance of standards development, highlight the need for consumer participants, and showcase ways to get involved. Webinars in the series feature the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission’s consumer ombudsman Jonathan Midgett and ANSI’s consumer outreach manager Cleo Stamatos.

Register for the October Consumer Safety Central webinar, to be held via Zoom, on ANSI’s Consumer Safety Central Webinar registration page. The webinar will have ASL and CART for participants who are hard of hearing.

ANSI’s consumer webinars are relevant to consumers including:

  • Individual members of the general public purchasing or using property, products, or services for private purpose
  • Consumer studies and other related departments at universities
  • Consumer advocacy organizations active in consumer protection
  • Nonprofit public-interest organizations

Consumer Voices Matter!

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&As with leading consumer advocates, ways to get involved and get support, and more.
