American National Standards Institute (ANSI)
25 West 43rd Street, 4th Floor
New York, NY, 10036

Press release date: July 30, 2012

In an effort to communicate the vital role that standards play in daily life, the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) will publish, on an ongoing basis, a series of snapshots of the diverse standards initiatives undertaken in the global and national standards arena, many of which are performed by ANSI members and ANSI-accredited standards developers. Two of the latest selections follow:

Electronic Messages
The influence, growth, and technology spurred by the introduction of electronic messaging in 1972 cannot be overstated. Today, there are billions of email, text, SMS, and instant messages transmitted daily. For perspective, the U.S. Postal Service handles 554 million pieces of mail per day, while more than 40 billion emails are sent every day in the United States alone.

A new American National Standard (ANS) from ARMA International, an ANSI member and accredited standards developer, outlines requirements for a policy guiding the management of electronic messages as records throughout their life cycle, from creation to final destruction or disposition. ANSI/ARMA 19-2012, Policy Design for Managing Electronic Messages, is intended for use by records and information management practitioners and educators, archivists, consultants, IT professionals, and individuals employed in a legal setting. The standard covers text-based electronic messages, e-mail and related attachments/metadata, instant messaging, and text messaging. It does not include requirements for video messaging, voicemail/audio-based messaging applications, or other electronic messaging platforms within the context of social media.

ARMA International serves paper and electronic records management and information professionals worldwide. The association develops and publishes standards and guidelines related to records management, disseminates industry legislative and regulatory information, and offers education and training for technology trends and applications.

Kitchen Exhausts
Commercial kitchen exhaust systems remove smoke, soot, and grease-laden vapor resulting from cooking operations. However, these systems become contaminated with grease and cooking by-products over time causing the accumulation of combustible contaminants that create fire safety hazards. To aid commercial kitchen exhaust cleaners, owners and managers of facilities, authorities having jurisdiction, insurance loss control specialists, and others in mitigating these fire hazards, the International Kitchen Exhaust Cleaning Association (IKECA) recently published ANSI/IKECA C10-2011, Standard for Cleaning of Commercial Kitchen Exhaust Systems.

The new ANS - the first dealing with the cleaning of commercial kitchen operations - provides guidance on industry-accepted processes and procedures for cleaning kitchen exhaust systems including how to determine the frequency and necessity for cleaning through inspection procedures, acceptable methods for cleaning exhaust systems and components, and standards for acceptable post-cleaning exhaust conditions. ANSI/IKECA C10-2011 is designed to complement NFPA 96-2011, Standard for Ventilation Control and Fire Protection of Commercial Cooking Operations.

IKECA, an ANSI member and accredited standards developer, is a non-profit organization committed to fire prevention and safety by promoting kitchen exhaust cleaning to a higher standard. The association offers rigorous certification programs for kitchen exhaust cleaning specialists and systems inspectors, and provides educational resources that foster industry compliance.
