ANSI strongly encourages all U.S. delegates to participate in international standardization meetings

To facilitate and advance strong U.S. participation in international standardization activities, the American National Standards Institute has released a free multimedia training course titled U.S. Delegates to International Activities: Roles and Responsibilities.

The course offers helpful advice and instruction on how to be an effective international delegate at International Organization for Standardization and International Electrotechnical Commission technical committee, subcommittee, working group, and other international standardization meetings.

The intent of the course is to give participants an understanding of the requirements for international standardization meetings, the roles and responsibilities of delegates, and how to best prepare for and conduct oneself at meetings. Video testimonials from standardization community leaders highlight the critical importance of effective U.S. delegate participation and offer first-hand accounts of successes and challenges.

The course also provides an overview of the standards landscape, including ANSI's role in U.S. and international standardization, and presents the benefits of standardization to U.S. organizations and the United States as a whole. The course is geared toward accredited delegates to international standards meetings, as well as corporate standards personnel and subject matter or technical experts interested in participating in international standardization activities.
