As the voice of the U.S. standards and conformity assessment system, the
American National Standards Institute (ANSI) empowers its members and
constituents to strengthen the U.S. marketplace position in the global
economy while helping to assure the safety and health of consumers and the
protection of the environment.
The Institute oversees the creation, promulgation and use of thousands of
norms and guidelines that directly impact businesses in nearly every
sector: from acoustical devices to construction equipment, from dairy and
livestock production to energy distribution, and many more. ANSI is also
actively engaged in accrediting programs that assess conformance to
standards – including globally-recognized cross-sector programs such as the
ISO 9000 (quality) and ISO 14000 (environmental) management systems.
