U.S.-India Standards and Conformance Cooperation Program (SCCP) Phase II
The U.S. – India Standards and Conformance Cooperation Program (SCCP) Phase II facilitates interaction and engagement between the public and private sectors in the United States and India. The goal is to increase cooperation in the areas of standards, conformity assessment, and technical regulations in three sectors of interest to industry: smart and sustainable cities, water and sanitation, and clean energy.
Sponsored by the U.S. Trade and Development Agency and coordinated by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII), the program aims to facilitate India’s development of transparent and streamlined standards, conformity assessment, and a technical regulations system.
Under the SCCP II, ANSI develops and delivers six workshops in India that address standards related issues in the sectors of interest.
