Press release date: April 10, 2012

Clean, potable water is a basic life necessity many of us take for granted. Yet around the world, 783 million people have no regular access to safe drinking water, and 2.5 billion people live without proper sanitation.

To examine the ways in which international standardization can help alleviate these global needs, the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) will hold an International Workshop on Water, hosted by the Japanese Industrial Standards Committee (JISC), in Kobe, Japan, on July 25-26, 2012.

The workshop was initiated by the ISO Task Force on Water Access and Use, a group established by the ISO Council in May 2011 to assess what national standards bodies and other standard development organizations are doing in the field of water, and identify gaps in need of attention. The workshop is intended to:

Raise awareness of water-related standardization and its potential to disseminate technology, share knowledge and best practices, and diffuse needed solutions on a global basis; Propose and examine standardization initiatives to address the global water challenge; and Identify priorities and define a recommended action plan for the development of new ISO standards in the field.

As the U.S. member body to ISO, the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) encourages all interested stakeholders, including representatives from governments, industries, and non-government organizations involved in water services and management, to attend.

The International Workshop on Water will take place July 25-26, 2012, at the Kobe Convention Center in Kobe, Japan. The event is being held in conjunction with the Sewage Works Exhibition 2012, a global exhibition focused on water and sewage issues. Workshop details are available on the event website; registration is forthcoming on that site. For more information, contact Marie-NoŽlle Bourquin at
