25 West 43rd Street, 4th Floor
New York, NY, 10036
Press release date: December 30, 2011
The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) proudly welcomed seventeen new members in December 2011:
American Imaging Management
American Society of Plumbing Engineers
BASF - The Chemical Company
Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Michigan
Donaldson Company, Inc.
Iowa DCI Crime Laboratory
Miami-Dade Police Department Crime Lab Bureau
Professional Electrical Apparatus Recyclers League (PEARL)
Scientific Research Corporation
SC MS-ISOROMCertification SRL
United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO)
University of Kentucky
These organizations joined a federation that represents more than 125,000 companies and well over 3.5 million professionals. Under the Institute's umbrella, this diverse constituency works together to strengthen the competitiveness of businesses operating in the global marketplace and to improve the quality of life for all citizens by developing, implementing, and promulgating voluntary consensus standards and related conformance assessment systems.
"Active participation in ANSI and its programs can serve as both a strategic and tangible asset for an organization," said Brian Meincke, the Institute's senior director of membership development, membership marketing, and industry outreach. "Not only will they gain access to information and business intelligence that is not available elsewhere, but they will also receive discounts on many products and services. Equally important, they can build relationships that empower them with a voice and influence over the standardization and conformity assessment decisions that directly affect their business."
