U.S. Celebration of World Standards Day to be held in conjunction with WSW

The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) has announced the dates for World Standards Week (WSW) 2010. The week of forums, meetings, and ceremonies will be held September 21-24, 2010, at the Crowne Plaza National Airport Hotel in Arlington, VA.

WSW is an annual event where members of the standards and conformity assessment community come together in the spirit of cooperation and collaboration. A number of gatherings are scheduled for the week, including meetings of several ANSI groups and committees and ANSI's Annual Business Meeting and Luncheon.

The 2010 ANSI Awards Banquet and Ceremony will also be held during WSW on September 22 at the Sheraton National Hotel in Arlington.

"For many years, World Standards Week has provided the diverse members of the standards community with the opportunity to meet, collaborate, celebrate our successes, and plan for the future," said S. Joe Bhatia, ANSI president and CEO. "We welcome all participants, new and returning, to this year's event, and look forward to working with you all."

In conjunction with WSW, the U.S. Celebration of World Standards Day (WSD) will take place on September 23, 2010, at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce in Washington, DC.

Celebrated annually, WSD serves to raise awareness of the importance of international standardization to the world economy and to promote its role in helping meet the needs of business, industry, government, and consumers worldwide. The global celebration is coordinated by the principal international standards organizations: the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC), the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), and the International Telecommunication Union (ITU).

The U.S. Celebration of WSD is organized annually by a planning committee consisting of representatives from across the standards and conformity assessment community. The event is co-chaired by ANSI and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) will serve as the administrating organization for 2010.

More details on WSW and WSD, including a full schedule of events, registration information, agendas, and accommodations, will be posted to ANSI's Events Page as they become available.
