ANSI Executive
Standards Council

Overview

The Executive Standards Council (ExSC) is responsible for the procedures and criteria for national and international standards development activities of ANSI, and accredits national standards developers and U.S. Technical Advisory Groups (TAGs) to ISO. The ANSI ExSC also hears appeals related to its areas of responsibility, and may also be delegated other duties by the ANSI Board of Directors. The ExSC typically meets three times per year, in January/February, May, and September.

The ExSC reports to the Executive Committee of the Board and follows the Operating Procedures of the ANSI Executive Standards Council.

Key Responsibilities

The functions of the ExSC include:

  • Developing and promulgating procedures and criteria for: (i) the accreditation and auditing of standards developers; and (ii) the coordination, development, approval and withdrawal of standards as American National Standards, including the ANSI Essential Requirements (and any successor or related documents)
  • Developing and promulgating procedures and criteria for the oversight of U.S. Technical Advisory Groups (TAGs) to ISO, including the International Procedures (or any successor or related document)
  • Overseeing all aspects of and making determinations relating to ANSI's standards developer accreditation, audit, and audited designator programs, as well as the accreditation of U.S. TAGs to ISO, including appeals of such decisions

The ExSC exercises exclusive responsibility for the terms of the ANSI Essential Requirements and International Procedures – including ANSI's Patent Policy – subject only to ExCo and/or Board approval. The ExSC, in its discretion, may solicit input from other Committees of ANSI, Membership Forums, or Policy Advisory Groups from time to time when interpreting or considering revisions to the ANSI Essential Requirements and International Procedures.

Members & Officers

The ExSC comprises up to 21 members of ANSI. ExSC members act as fiduciaries of ANSI and must act in the best interest of the Institute. They must also abide by ANSI's Conflict of Interest and Related Party Transaction Policy, the ANSI Code of Conduct, and the ExSC Operating Procedures. Members should, to the extent possible, represent the broadest interests of all standards developers and/or users. Full details on ExSC member and officer criteria are included in the ANSI By-Laws and the ExSC Operating Procedures.

ANSI members interested in becoming a member of the ExSC should contact Anne Caldas at acaldas@ansi.org.
