Regional Standing Committee - Americas

The RSC-Americas (RSC-A) was created in an effort to broaden the participation of ANSI in the development of policy positions regarding regional standards and conformity assessment activities, and to coordinate U.S. activities, respond to initiatives and advise ANSI on matters relating to the Americas.

Regional Standing Committee - Americas Overview

The mission of the RSC-A is to develop and maintain strategies and goals for the Americas region for the ANSI International Policy Committee (IPC) on an ongoing basis to achieve objectives such as to:

  • Develop and coordinate positions for ANSI delegations to meetings of the Pan American Standards Commission (COPANT).
  • Coordinate ANSI positions with other ISO and IEC member bodies in the hemisphere on policy, standards, and conformity assessment.
  • Work with the Organization of American States (OAS), the Inter American Development Bank (IDB), and other related institutions to identify common goals on standards and conformity assessment activities.
  • Work with the U.S Department of Commerce including the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the International Trade Administration (ITA) and other governmental agencies on standards and conformity assessment issues impacting the region.
  • Support the US Government on trade-related standards and conformity assessment matters impacting the region.
  • Identify experts who are able to represent ANSI at relevant regional meetings and conferences.
