US automation experts invited to participate in international standards development
NEW YORK — U.S. automation experts have a chance to comment on international standards development during industrial working group meetings that will take place Nov. 11-16 in Miami.
The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) is giving U.S. experts in automation systems and integration the opportunity to help determine the future of their industries through active participation in U.S. Technical Advisory Groups (TAGs) to a variety of ISO Technical Committees (TCs) and Subcommittees (SCs).
U.S. TAGs are tasked with developing and implementing U.S. positions on ISO activities, including the approval, revision, and withdrawal of ISO standards.
The U.S. TAG is currently seeking industry, government and other interested experts to participate in the following ISO groups, which work on a variety of standards related to automation, especially in those areas related to manufacturing systems and integration:
* TC 184, Automation systems and integration
* TC 184, SC 4, Industrial data
* TC 184, SC 5, Interoperability, integration, and architectures for enterprise systems and automation applications
Interested parties have the opportunity to get involved right away at the industrial data working group meetings in November.
“Becoming a U.S. delegate to an international meeting is a tremendous opportunity for an individual’s career development and for the company they represent,” said S. Joe Bhatia, ANSI president and CEO. “Time and again we have seen that those who understand how to effectively influence and address standardization and compliance issues have the greatest success in the global marketplace.”
To participate in a U.S. TAG or learn about other ISO-related activities, contact Karen Hughes, ANSI program manager, ISO P membership (firstname.lastname@example.org; 212-642-4992).
