Frequently Asked Questions about U.S. Participation in ISO

One of ANSI’s key responsibilities as the U.S. member of ISO is accrediting U.S. Technical Advisory Groups (TAGs) to serve as national mirror committees to ISO Technical Committees (TCs), Subcommittees (SCs), and Project Committees (PCs) developing standards. ANSI-accredited U.S. TAGs are comprised of relevant experts from a range of stakeholder categories who work together to develop U.S. consensus positions on activities and ballots of a specific ISO committee.

To help make U.S. participation as robust and effective as possible, ANSI has compiled these frequently asked questions for U.S. TAG members, U.S. TAG leaders, and other interested parties regarding their roles or opportunities in ISO international standards development activities. If you have additional questions, please reach out to ANSI's ISO Team at [email protected]; we'd be happy to hear from you. (For general questions about ANSI and standardization, see Standards FAQs.)
