ANSI - American National Standards Institute

Regional Activities

ANSI, via its International Policy Committee (IPC), monitors many key regional activities around the world. In order to improve response time and broaden the participation of ANSI federation members in the formulation of policy positions regarding regional standards and conformity assessment activities, the IPC formed three Regional Standing Committees (RSCs). The IPC serves as their overall coordinating body to ensure consistency in ANSI policy positions globally.

The Regional Standing Committees are each chaired by IPC members; membership on the RSCs is drawn from the overall ANSI membership base. Their activities are conducted primarily by correspondence and they meet on an as needed basis.
