Media Access to ANSI Events
Conferences and Open Events
Recognized media representatives are invited to attend and cover most
ANSI-sponsored conferences and all open events for the standards and conformity
assessment community. At these events, members of the media will have direct
access to speakers, panelists and event attendees. In most cases, interviews
can be requested and/or conducted on-site; ANSI’s media relations staff can
also assist with scheduling interviews either pre- or post-event.
Working meetings of ANSI-sponsored committees, boards and councils are closed
events and will not be open for attendance by the media. In these cases, ANSI’s
media relations staff can assist with scheduling interviews with committee
officers or designated spokespersons either pre- or post-event.
To receive press credentials, ANSI requires verification of the editorial press
corps, photographers and broadcast crew.
Media passes are typically issued only to full-time representatives of:
daily and weekly newspapers and periodicals with a general circulation.
recognized national or international news services.
radio or television stations maintaining regular news departments.

verify they have been retained to cover the subject ANSI event by presenting a

Media passes will be given to reporters, writers, editors, publishers,
photographers, or videographers from print, broadcast, and online outlets who
meet these qualifications.
Account representatives, sales executives, book authors, and engineers are not
eligible for media passes.
