The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) is a 501(C)3 private, non-profitable organization that administrates and coordinates the US 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 standard and conformance–based solutions that meet the needs of national and global priorities.
The Global Skill Development Council (GSDC) is proud to be ANSI Accredited Member.
As the voice of the US standard and conformity assessment system, the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) empowers its members and constituents to strengthen the US marketplace position in the global economy while helping the assurance of 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 from acoustical devices to construction equipment, from education and livestock production to energy distribution, and many more. In a nutshell, it has spread its wings in almost every industry.
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.
