New York, NY, 10036

Press release date: July 27, 2009

A new brochure developed by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) is now available online and in hard copy. Change Is Built on a Foundation of Strength is a brochure targeting members of the new administration that outlines the benefits and contributions of the U.S. standards and conformance system and its use of a consensus-based, public-private partnership model.

The brochure highlights efforts by ANSI and its Federation of members in several critical areas:

Import safety Protecting the nation's water supply Sustainability and the environment Alternative energies More effective energy management practices Health information technology Homeland security Trade and development

In each section, readers can learn about efforts to bring government and industry together to identify consensus-based solutions to the issues facing Americans nationwide.

From ANSI's collaboration with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) on encouraging the production and use of water-efficient products with the WaterSense program, to the Institute's administration of the Healthcare Information Technology Standards Panel (HITSP) under contract to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), public-private partnerships are a critical element of these efforts.

The brochure also outlines emerging issues and priorities, including:

Safety and security of the national transportation infrastructure, including bridges, tunnels, roadways, railways, and airports Smart Grid technology for the national power delivery system, affording more efficient, economical, and safe energy usage Education and qualification of the global workforce Emerging issues and new developments in nanotechnology and biotechnology Intelligent and sustainable design for the next generation of green buildings Environmental labeling requirements and guidelines Oversight of the global supply chain - from toys and tires to toothpaste and tuna

"No matter the challenge, solutions cannot be developed in a vacuum," explained S. Joe Bhatia, ANSI president and CEO. "The public-private partnership must become stronger so that we achieve results and identify viable, effective solutions through collaboration.

"As coordinator of the U.S. standards and conformity assessment system, ANSI facilitates this partnership between stakeholders from government and industry. We are dedicated to the continued growth of our collaboration, and to the identification of consensus-based solutions that respond to national priorities and emerging technologies."
