The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) is a private, non-profit organization that administers and coordinates the U.S. voluntary standards and conformity assessment system.
Founded in 1918, the Institute works in close collaboration with stakeholders from industry and government to identify and develop standards and conformance–based solutions to national and global priorities.
The Global Skill Development Council (GSDC) is proud to be ANSI Accredited Member.
As the voice of the U.S. standards and conformity assessment system, the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) empowers its members and constituents to strengthen the U.S. marketplace position in the global economy while helping to assure the safety and health of consumers and the protection of the environment.
The Institute oversees the creation, promulgation and use of thousands of norms and guidelines that directly impact businesses in nearly every sector: from acoustical devices to construction equipment, from education and livestock production to energy distribution, and many more.
ANSI is also actively engaged in accrediting programs that assess conformance to standards – including globally-recognized cross-sector programs such as the ISO 9000 (quality) and ISO 14000 (environmental) management systems.
ANSI is a 501(c)3, not-for-profit organization.
