New York, NY, 10036

Press release date: July 5, 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 October 18, 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-accreditedstandards 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.

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.

Register for the October 18 course.

This course is designed for staff who will implement the American National Standards development process and for those who need to understand the specific and detailed procedures related to the development of American National Standards, maintaining accreditation by ANSI as a standards developer and the ANSI Audit requirements.

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;
