The American National
Standards Institute (ANSI) is the U.S. member body to the International
Organization for Standardization (ISO). To ensure a strong and effective U.S.
voice in international standardization, the ANSI ISO Team (ISOT) acts as the
interface between ANSI-accredited U.S. Technical Advisory Groups (U.S. TAGs)
and/or ANSI-delegated U.S. held ISO secretariats.
ISOT daily operations include monitoring and recording of
ISO documents, processing votes on behalf of U.S. TAGs, accrediting delegates
to attend international meetings, nominating experts to participate on working
groups, coordination with key group such as the ANSI ISO Forum (AIF), ANSI ISO
Council (AIC), and the ISO Technical Management Board (TMB), administering ANSI
Virtual Technical Advisory Groups (VTAGs), facilitating training programs,
among many other functions. In addition
to daily responsibilities, ISOT is available to assist with any committee
specific issues U.S. TAGs or U.S. held secretariats may be facing. ISOT staff is well versed in the ISO
procedures, ANSI International Procedures, and has experience in all aspects of
the ISO process.
