Design Solutions - Fall 2017 - 12

A standard is established by consensus and provides rules, guidelines, or
characteristics for activities or their results. Standards provide people and
organizations with a basis for mutual understanding, and are used as tools
to facilitate communication, measurement, commerce and manufacturing.

Behind the scenes,
standards make everyday
life work. They may establish
size or shape or capacity
of a product, process or
system. They can specify
performance of products
or personnel. They also can
define terms so that there
is no misunderstanding
among those using the
standard. As examples,
standards help ensure
uniformity in financial
accounting practices (GAAP),
construction drawing in CAD
format is uniform (NCS) or
that buildings are constructed
with best practice strategies
to protect people from
hazards (NFPA 101).

In the
U.S. alone,
there are
more than
100,000
standards
at work
across all industry sectors.
Any entity or individual can
participate in standards
development activities.
The U.S. market-driven,
sector-based approach to
standards development
offers flexibility, efficiency,
and a responsiveness that is
unparalleled in most other
nations.

The American National
Standards Institute (ANSI)
oversees the creation,
promulgation and use of
thousands of norms and
guidelines that directly
impact businesses in
nearly every sector. ANSI
accredits qualified Standard
Development Organizations
(SDO) to follow prescribed
standards writing process,
and ensures compliance
to that process through a
rigorous audit process.
