American National Standards Institute (ANSI)
11 West 42nd St., 13th Flr.
New York, NY, 10036
USA



Press release date: October 13, 2010

The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) has submitted input to a request from the National Science and Technology Council (NSTC) Subcommittee on Standards on how the subcommittee can most effectively interact with the private sector. Recognizing that standards and conformity assessment activities are inextricably linked to all facets of our national economy and are vital to the continued competitiveness of U.S. industry, this document has been compiled from comments and suggestions received by ANSI from a broad cross-section of its membership, which includes industry, standards developers and conformity assessment bodies, government, consumers, and academia.

Forging an Even Stronger Public-Private Partnership outlines ways that the Subcommittee can strengthen its collaboration with the private sector standardization community to enhance the competitiveness of U.S. industry, protect the environment, and assure public health and safety. Throughout the document, ANSI encourages the Subcommittee to build upon the success of the National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act of 1995 (NTTAA), especially in areas of strategic national importance where technology and policy intersect.

Input is divided into several topics, including standards and regulation, policy development, intellectual property rights, and better information sharing.

The document also provides several examples of success through public-private partnerships. These include the Superior Energy Performance (SEP) Partnership, Smart Grid initiatives, the Environmental Protection Agency's WaterSense program, and more.

"ANSI is pleased to work in partnership with the NSTC Subcommittee as it tackles key issues and identifies goals and strategies on how best to strengthen our national standards system," said S. Joe Bhatia, ANSI president and CEO. "We stand ready to assist in any manner that may facilitate the growth of U.S. leadership and innovation on the global stage through standardization. With our shared experiences, ANSI and its members would be proud to offer continued feedback that will improve the processes and the outcomes of our collaboration."

The NSTC subcommittee leadership's request for input from ANSI followed a meeting of Subcommittee members with ANSI leadership in April 2010. [see related news item] In May, ANSI held a webinar for all interested constituents to discuss the agenda and goals of the Subcommittee and to address the request for input. [see related news item]
