ANSI, UL Standards & Engagement Seeking Comments on Whitepaper Draft

Comments on “Principles for Measuring the Impact of Voluntary Consensus Standards on Human Health and Safety” are due by June 15.

Two groups are looking for public comments on a draft whitepaper that focuses on measuring standards’ impacts.

According to the draft, titled “Principles for Measuring the Impact of Voluntary Consensus Standards on Human Health and Safety”—published by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and UL Standards & Engagement—"this paper seeks to illustrate the value of the work done by the standardization community and provide insight into how one can go about measuring the positive impact that standards have on human health and safety.”

Per an ANSI news release, people interested in commenting must submit comments to ANSI Senior Director, Standards Facilitation Jim McCabe, who can be reached by email at [email protected] or by phone at 212-642-8921. Specific Instructions for submitting comments and the comment form are included on ANSI’s website. All comments are due by June 15, 2023, about a month and a half before the estimated publication date.
