Press release date: August 14, 2012

DIN, Germany's member body to the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), has submitted a proposal to ISO for a new field of technical activity on biotechnology. As the U.S. member body to ISO, the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) invites all interested stakeholders to submit comments on the proposal by Friday, September 21, 2012.

The proposed work area would cover standardization in the field of biotechnology to establish internationally recognized and accepted terms and definitions, analytical and diagnostic methods, computing tools and technology for international comparability, and integratability of data. The new committee would not seek to standardize academic or SME research, but would instead encourage experts from these groups to actively participate in the standardization of biotechnological products, techniques, and processes.

A new Technical Committee (TC) is proposed to undertake work in this area. The TC on biotechnology would be responsible for the timely incorporation of innovative ideas into the standardization work and would seek collaboration between relevant international committees in order to maximize efficiency and minimize duplication and conflict.

Interested parties are invited to review the proposal, and to submit relevant comments to Steven Cornish, ANSI director of international policy (scornish@ansi.org) by the close of business on Friday, September 21, 2012.

All input received by ANSI will be compiled and presented to the ANSI ISO Council (AIC) along with a recommended ANSI position on the proposal. Relevant documents will be submitted to ISO before the proposal deadline of Thursday, October 25, 2012.
