ANSI and European Standards Organizations

ANSI and European Standards Organizations Convene in Washington DC January 25-27, 2005

Washington, DC, January 27, 2005 ¨C Significant progress is being made between European and American

 interests in fostering global standards that are market relevant, stated Dr. George Arnold, chairman of the

American National Standards Institute (ANSI).  

Opportunities for collaboration and information sharing in key areas were the focus of the 19th meeting

between representatives of the American National Standards Institute and the European standards

organizations (ESOs). This annual dialogue is a platform for ANSI and the European Standards

Organizations to identify and address standards related issues to avoid trade disputes.  More than 60

participants, including ranking officials of the European Committee for Standardization (CEN), the European

Committee for Electrotechnical Standardization (CENELEC) and the European Telecommunications Standards

Institute (ETSI), convened in Washington, DC, on January 25-27, 2005, to address items of mutual interest

in the global standardization community. 

Participants discussed security-related standards initiatives, noting a commonality of approach at the

national, regional and international levels and a growing number of activities affecting citizens around the

world.   Effective implementation of ISO and IEC initiatives on global relevance were commended as being of

critical importance.  A detailed consideration of accessibility standards and regulations on both sides of the

Atlantic led to the conclusion that there was mutual interest in avoiding technical barriers to trade and therefore great value in an ongoing dialogue involving both government and private sector interests.  There were also active discussions on government standards-related initiatives, focusing on levels of funding and

differences in strategic approach.
