!!!Standards Alert!!!

Standards Alert is a new service from OSIP in cooperation with the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), the private sector coordinator of the U.S. Standards system. Through Standards Alert, OSIP and ANSI want to make sure that all ITA units and ITA clients know about opportunities to participate in standards development in organizations such as the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC). U.S. company participation is key to making sure that standards do not become trade barriers when incorporated into regulations by U.S. trading partners. OSIP and ANSI will share new opportunities in a timely manner as they become available.
