About the ANSI Blog

What is ANSI?

The American National Standards Institute is the administrator and coordinator of the U.S. private sector voluntary standardization system. You might recognize our name from ANSI C++ programming or elsewhere. ANSI oversees the creation, promotion, and use of standards that impact businesses in practically any sector, ranging from construction to agriculture. ANSI is also the U.S. member body to ISO (International Organization for Standardization).

The ANSI Mission is:

To enhance both the global competitiveness of U.S. business and the U.S. quality of life by promoting and facilitating voluntary consensus standards and conformity assessment systems, and safeguarding their integrity.

At ANSI, we deal with standards. Here, at the ANSI Blog, we find new ways of dealing with standards. Through news and developments in the world of standardization, interesting applications of standards most people don’t even know exist, and even contributions from industry experts, we look for and bring to you information on the many lesser-known compliance efforts that directly impact your life.

If you’d like to get in touch with us, or are interested in contributing, please visit our Contact Us page or email blog@ansi.org.

For any technical information regarding a standard, you will need to reach out to the correct standard developing organization (SDO). To find the correct SDO, please refer to our post Who to Contact for Standards-Related Questions.
