Press release date: July 20, 2009

The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) would like to inform all interested stakeholders that an electronic version of the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) Directory of Consumer Interest Participation is now available online. The new directory provides enhanced, easily updatable information on the state of consumer participation in standards setting, particularly in the priority areas identified by the ISO Committee on Consumer Policy (COPOLCO).

Data supplied by ISO members is automatically integrated into in the online directory, providing real-time information on consumer participation organized by priority area or by country. A query page allows users to generate listings of standards or standards under development within each priority area.

For each country listed in the directory, users can find:

Relevant data on the ISO national member body The contact person for consumer matters Types of consumer participation in policy and/or governance committees Support that the ISO member provides for consumer interest involvement For specific priority areas, users can find:

Consumer representation on international committees of ISO or the International Electrotechical Commission (IEC) National committees or mirror committees Other related initiatives Publicly available resources for consumer stakeholders

The directory is a valuable tool for COPOLCO members, consumer representatives, researchers, and interested members of the general public who wish to gain insight into the structures and processes of consumer participation within ISO.

Development of the online directory was a substantial undertaking facilitated by the ISO/Central Secretariat and the COPOLCO consumer participation working group, which is chaired by ANSI director of consumer relations James McCabe. The online tool replaces a paper-based COPOLCO directory that listed structures for consumer participation within each country.
