Press release date: March 12, 2012

On April 11, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) will host a public workshop entitled Conformity Assessment - Approaches and Best Practices.

To be held at NIST's headquarters in Gaithersburg, MD, the workshop will provide a forum for discussion on the current approaches to conformity assessment among federal agencies and the private sector, and help inform a planned update to NIST's Guidance on Federal Conformity Assessment Activities (15 C.F.R. Part 287).

The regulations outline federal agencies' responsibility for evaluating the efficiency and effectiveness of their conformity assessment activities and are intended to help federal agencies improve the management and coordination of their own conformity assessment activities in support of their regulatory, procurement, and other mission objectives. NIST is seeking input from members of the public on potential revisions to the regulations. Discussions at the NIST workshop will inform the further development of the guidance.

The conference will include presentations from key government officials, regulators, and industry and conformity assessment experts. Time will be allotted for participant input and discussions.

This event is free, but advance registration is required. For further information, or to register visit the workshop webpage.
