ASABE International Standards Activities

ASABE is accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) to coordinate and develop the U.S. position in fourteen distinct areas of international standards development. Each of these areas has an associated ASABE technical committee, made up of U.S. experts from a diverse range of backgrounds, to establish the U.S. position in these areas.

These committees (called TAGs, or Technical Advisory Groups) operate in a manner that complies with all applicable ANSI and ISO/IEC procedures. The committees are:
