ANSI Welcomes New Members
Press release date: August 31, 2012
The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) proudly welcomed 15 new members in July 2012:
2Wire, Inc. Arrow Steel Inc. CedarCrestone, Inc. Commonwealth of Massachusetts Myraqa, Inc. National Emergency Number Association Sharf & Associates Shock Doctor Inc. Sloan Transportation Products State Auto Sustainability Accounting Standards Board University of Southern Queensland U.S. Department of Justice - FBI USPIS Forensic Laboratory Services Viatore Systems, Inc.
These organizations joined a federation that represents more than 125,000 companies and well over 3.5 million professionals. Under the Institute's umbrella, this diverse constituency works together to strengthen the competitiveness of businesses operating in the global marketplace and to improve the quality of life for all citizens by developing, implementing, and promulgating voluntary consensus standards and related conformance assessment systems.
"Active participation in ANSI and its programs can serve as both a strategic and tangible asset for an organization," said S. Joe Bhatia, ANSI president and CEO. "Not only will they gain access to information and business intelligence that is not available elsewhere, but they will also receive discounts on many products and services. Equally important, they can build relationships that empower them with a voice and influence over the standardization and conformity assessment decisions that directly affect their business."
