Benefits of Accreditation

ANSI accreditation signifies that the procedures used in the development of evidence of consensus meet ANSI's requirements for openness and due process. The ANSI imprimatur is nationally recognized and acknowledged by business, government, users and consumers. It indicates recognition by a neutral party that the subject standards represent the consensus of materially affected and interested parties in the voluntary standards process. ANSI accreditation and ANSI standards are sought by business, government and users, and are relied upon by the courts because the ANSI process ensures openness, due process and consensus.

Participating in the ANSI process also provides opportunities to: become involved in international standardization; set policy related to national standards issues; have a voice in issues that affect trade; and meet colleagues in the standards community.
