Abstract:
Approval of ISO Technical Committee is Imminent

ANSI Solicits Participation on New Technical Advisory Group in the Area of Nanotechnology

New York, NY | May 13, 2005

The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) recently submitted an application for accreditation for a proposed U.S. Technical Advisory Group (TAG) to the International Organization for Standardization’s (ISO) new Technical Committee (TC) in Nanotechnologies, and for approval as the U.S. TAG Administrator. ANSI is soliciting participation for this new TAG activity. The ISO Technical Committee, TC 229 - Nanotechnologies, is expected to be officially approved later this month by the ISO Technical Management Board.

ANSI has submitted to ISO a recommended U.S. position in response to the development of this new technical committee. U.S. stakeholders have identified and supported ANSI to serve in the role of administrator for the U.S. TAG once the ISO TC is officially established.

To serve as a member of an ANSI-accredited U.S. TAG to ISO, applicants must satisfy the definition of “U.S. National Interested Party,” which states that one of the following entities must be directly and materially affected by the relevant standards activity:

  • an individual representing a corporation or an organization domiciled in the U.S. (including U.S. branch offices of foreign companies authorized to do business in one or more states as defined by the relevant State’s Corporation law within the U.S.);
  • an individual representing a U.S. Federal, state or local government entity; or
  • a U.S. citizen or permanent resident.

It is expected that the first meeting of TC 229 is likely to be held in the fall of 2005; a meeting of the U.S. TAG is expected to take place in July 2005 at a time and place to be determined. Additional information will be provided to all those who notify ANSI that they are interested in participating on the U.S. TAG.

Interested parties that would like to join the TAG, obtain additional information, or offer comments are advised to contact Heather Benko, standards administrator, procedures and standards administration, at hbenko@ansi.org, 212.642.4912 (tel); or 212.840.2298 (fax).
