Frequently Asked Questions

So, what is the American National Standards Institute? It is a private, non-profit organisation. The standards are not written by the ANSI, but instead accredit standard developers who establish agreement among qualified groups.

The ANSI administers and coordinates the voluntary standards and conformity assessment system across the U.S. Many American National Standards are also national adaptations of globally relevant international standards.

Working in collaboration with industry stakeholders and government agencies worldwide, the ANSI identifies and develops standards in accordance with conformance-based solutions to national and global priorities.


The global relevant standards and conformance measures are designed and implemented to increase overall efficiency, boost consumer confidence, and reduce costs and open markets.

The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) is a private, nonprofit organisation. It is also a member of the International Accreditation Forum (IAF) and is the United States member body to ISO and, via its United States National Committee, the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC). 


The ANSI membership is made up of a variety of businesses and industrial organisations, trade associations, labour unions, professional societies, consumer groups, academia, and government organisations for the principal function of enhancing global business competitiveness and improving the quality of life for citizens globally.

The primary function of the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) is to collaborate with industry and government stakeholders to develop voluntary documents that can be used for regulatory or procurement purposes across a wide range of industries.                                                                                       


ANSI approves the standards and then publishes the standards that have been developed by industry organisations. The standards are published as American National Standards. These standards are also national adaptations of globally relevant international standards.


The ANSI is a standard body that represents the United States at the ISO and the IEC, both of which set key international standards. The ANSI has a significant positive impact on the safety, quality, and efficiency of many industries.


As an active participant in a number of global public and private sector partnerships, the ANSI assists emerging economies so it is possible to build capacity effectively and efficiently implement infrastructure and regulatory compliance, standards, and trade.  


Standards are available by publisher and industry. The standard categories also come with ICS codes, for example, electronics and railway engineering.
