Press release date: February 15, 2011

The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) is pleased to announce the addition of Course 287, The American Way, to its 2011 education and training course offerings.

To be held on March 30, 2011, in New York City, The American Way: The American National Standard (ANS) Development Process, takes an in-depth look at U.S. voluntary consensus standardization and the ANS development process.

The course offers a comprehensive "nuts and bolts" session for staff of ANSI-accredited standards developers and those interested in pursuing accreditation. Attendees will gain a greater understanding of the ANS development process and procedures, the benefits of ANSI accreditation, and where flexibility exists in the standards development process. Discussions will center on the requirements contained in the ANSI Essential Requirements including those related to accreditation, standards approval, and audit requirement.

This course is ideal for staff from standards developing organizations; standards committee members, officers, and administrators; corporate standards personnel; subject matter/technical experts; and anyone who wants to learn more details about ANSI's procedural requirements as they relate to the development of American National Standards.

After attending this program, participants will understand:

the U.S. voluntary consensus standardization process;

the accreditation process for developers of ANS;

the ANS development process and procedures, and submittal of standards to ANSI for approval;

the importance of an appeals policy and the mechanisms for processing appeals;

maintenance of accreditation requirements including the ANSI audit program, and how an audit can help accredited standards developers; and

the importance of due process provisions within the ANS process and implementation options and requirements.

The course will be held in ANSI's New York office at 25 West 43rd Street, Fourth Floor, New York, NY, from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Registration is required. Note: additional ANS-related training offerings will be available later in the year; visit ANSI's 2011 course schedule for updates.

Questions about ANSI's education and training programs can be directed to Lisa Rajchel (; 212.642.4932).

What is an ANS? Today, approximately 9,500 American National Standards impacting every industry have been developed and approved in accordance with the ANSI Essential Requirements.

ANSI accreditation signifies that the procedures used by standards developing organizations meet the Institute's requirements for openness, balance, consensus, and due process.

American National Standards are voluntary and serve U.S. interests well because all impacted stakeholders work together to create them.
