New York April 7, 2009

The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) led the NASDAQ market open ceremony on April 7, 2009, in New York City. The ceremony was broadcast live from NASDAQ MarketSite in Times Square to millions of viewers worldwide, and is available for playback here.

ANSI president and CEO S. Joe Bhatia gave a speech at the opening ceremony that highlighted the contributions that standards and conformity assessment make to the global economy.

"Just as standards impact all industry and service sectors, they make an enormous contribution to the financial services world," said Mr. Bhatia. "Every day, you come into contact with standards: the size and configuration of checks, protocols for messaging, numbering systems for credit cards and securities transactions, and even the hardware and software platforms used to power the NASDAQ stock market itself.

"Simply put, standards and conformance boost business," Mr. Bhatia continued. "When used effectively, they can build consumer confidence and restore trust, provide extra cost savings, increase efficiencies, attract and retain customers, foster innovation, and facilitate trade - enabling companies to survive, grow, and thrive.".
