Deadline for Comments on U.S. Standards Strategy Approaching

Published: Tuesday, April 12, 2005 - 22:00

Comments on the updated draft of the United States Standards Strategy are due by April 18. A first draft of the USSS revision was released on March 7, 2005. The USSS will be the topic of a National Institute of Standards and Technology forum, scheduled for April 15 in Washington, D.C.

The draft USSS is a revision of the National Standards Strategy for the United States, released in August 2000. According to the American National Standards Institute, the 2000 NSS reaffirmed that the U.S. is committed to a sector-based approach to voluntary standardization activities, both domestically and globally. It established a standardization framework that was built upon the traditional strengths of the U.S. system—such as consensus, openness and transparency—while giving additional emphasis to speed, relevance, and meeting the needs of public interest constituencies.
