American National Standards Institute (ANSI)
25 West 43rd Street, 4th Floor
New York, NY, 10036

Press release date: January 12, 2012

New York -- As efforts take hold around the globe to advance high-priority technology areas such as smart grid, electric vehicles/e-mobility, renewable resources, and energy efficiency, participation at the international standardization table where technical, strategic, and policy decisions are made is increasingly vital.

U.S. Participation in IEC
Currently, the USNC is one of the most active national committees to the IEC, participating on nearly all IEC technical committees and subcommittees, as well as all of the major policy committees. In total, the U.S. holds 157 participating memberships on a diverse array of technical activities. The strategic importance of corporate participation in international standards and conformance activities will be the focus of a free webinar on February 6 organized by the U.S. National Committee (USNC) of the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC). The webinar is part of an ongoing series hosted by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) featuring targeted activities of interest.

"Developing and developed economies alike are playing an increasingly significant role in IEC standardization activities, especially in emerging technology areas," said Philip Piqueira, USNC president. "To remain competitive globally, U.S. companies should not miss the opportunity to take a seat at the table where decisions affecting a company's products, services, and ability to trade are being set."

Moderated by Eaton Corporation's manager of codes and standards Kevin Lippert, the webinar will feature speakers from leading U.S. companies, including:
  • GE Industrial Solutions (Philip Piqueira, global standards leader)
  • Corning Incorporated (Jim Matthews, director of technical standards and standards policy)
  • Rockwell Automation (Alec McMillan, director of global standards and trade)

    USNC/IEC Online Course on March 28
    On March 28, the USNC will host an instructor-led training course on effective participation in the development of globally relevant IEC standards.

    This course is designed to give tips of the trade to U.S. delegates who wish to work on and improve their skills as representatives. Participants will learn how to put your best foot forward when representing the United States. Registration details and further information are forthcoming. The speakers will discuss how participation in the USNC has proven essential for global market access.

    Engineers, standards managers, quality assurance/ testing personnel, legal representatives, and others involved in areas of emerging technologies are encouraged to participate.

    The free webinar will be held on Monday, February 6, 2012, at 2:00 p.m. ET and will run approximately 45 minutes.
