Press release date: January 13, 2011

The three suspicious packages sent to government officials in Maryland and Washington, D.C., last week, including one addressed to Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano that ignited in a mail facility, are just the latest incidents underscoring the critical need for security solutions. Daily headlines from all corners of the globe confirm that security has become an international concern, and governments and organizations worldwide are looking for concrete strategies for mitigating threats.

As part of its ongoing efforts in this critical arena, the American National Standards Institute Homeland Security Standards Panel (ANSI-HSSP) has released its final report from the panel's ninth plenary in November. The meeting brought together more than 130 experts from the U.S. and abroad to set a path for U.S.-European collaboration on global security issues.

At the heart of the ANSI-HSSP's discussions were standards and conformance-based solutions to support aviation, border, and maritime security, crisis management, and global supply chain security - key priorities identified by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the European Commission's Joint Research Centre as potential areas for collaboration at their April 2010 meeting.

With the goal of identifying areas where additional standards may be needed, attendees considered these key priorities against the backdrop of existing domestic and international standards. Panel discussions took attendees through an in-depth look at aviation security standardization, borders and maritime security standardization, global supply chain security standardization, and conformity assessment systems.

The plenary report outlines the key findings from each of the five panels, and sets a path for continued collaboration on homeland security standardization and cross-border issues. The report represents the collaborative efforts of more than 130 leading representatives from sixty-seven U.S. and European organizations, including U.S. federal agencies, the European Commission, standards developers, industry, and academia.

HID Global, the Homeland Security Studies and Analysis Institute, and the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) co-sponsored the ANSI-HSSP ninth plenary.
