Press release date: September 21, 2009

The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) is pleased to announce its intention to host the 35th General Assembly of the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) in San Diego. This gathering offers an excellent opportunity for the world's standardization community to come together for discussions that will shape the direction of ISO's future products, services, and systems. In accordance with ISO practice, a formal offer and the expected acceptance of the offer will be made at the ISO Council meeting in September 2010.

The meeting will bring together more than 600 delegates and accompanying persons from ISO's more than 160 member countries. Holding this event in the U.S. offers myriad benefits and opportunities, showcasing American technology and innovation to colleagues around the globe and saving U.S. experts the time and expense of traveling to another nation - a significant savings in this difficult economic climate.

Since ISO's founding in 1947, ANSI has helped to propel ISO's work by representing U.S. interests at the table where International Standards and policies are developed. As host, ANSI will reaffirm the U.S.'s commitment to international standardization; raise awareness of ISO to U.S. industry management; and contribute to the spirit of international cooperation that drives the standardization community.

Hosting an event of this magnitude and importance requires broad financial support. To ensure the best possible event on behalf of all ISO participants from the U.S. and abroad, ANSI is offering sponsorship opportunities for the ISO 2012 General Assembly. With a number of sponsorship levels and valuable benefits provided to organizations contributing at each level, sponsorship is a mutually beneficial arrangement that demonstrates the U.S.'s commitment to furthering international standardization.

Questions can be directed to Steven P. Cornish, ANSI senior director for international policy (; 212.642.4969).
