Attend a Virtual Public Listening Session: Implementation of the United States Government National Standards Strategy for Critical and Emerging Technology

11/22/2023

Session on December 19

The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) encourages relevant stakeholders to attend the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) virtual public listening session on December 19, to focus on questions posed in the Request for Information (RFI) on the implementation of the United States Government National Standards Strategy for Critical and Emerging Technology (USG NSSCET).

Those who plan to watch the listening session via livestream do not need to register; visit the event page on NIST’s website to access the livestream link on December 19.

Stakeholders who wish to provide remarks at the listening session must register by December 1, 2023, at 6:00 p.m. ET. Speaking spots are limited. NIST will select speakers who have submitted registration details on a first come, first served basis. Speakers will be informed in advance of their assigned time slot and time allocated for their remarks. If more requests to speak are received than time allows, NIST will invite the requestor to submit written comments.

The recent RFIwith a comment period that ends on December 22is intended to “support the identification and prioritization of key activities that will optimize the USG NSSCET implementation and further enhance the U.S. Government’s ability to support a private sector-led, open, consensus-based international standards system, to which the U.S. Government is an active stakeholder and participant.”

Released in May 2023, the USG NSSCET outlines U.S. government goals to advance U.S. competitiveness, protect the integrity of standards-developing ecosystems, and assure the long-term success of the U.S. innovation ecosystem, with a focus on critical and emerging technology. It commits to increasing U.S. government support for the private sector-led standards system, and calls out its alignment with the United States Standards Strategy (USSS) published by ANSI.

As part of ongoing efforts to gather private-sector input on implementation of the USG NSSCET, ANSI and NIST co-hosted a November 16 listening session in ANSI’s Washington, DC, headquarters. Read more about key takeaways on the session in ANSI’s news article.

Furthermore, with a focus on building standards awareness and fostering a standards-literate workforce, ANSI, Workcred, and Columbia University will co-host a listening session on December 6; access the agenda for full details.
