International Standards Introduction

Standards touch almost every aspect of our lives. The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) creates documents that provide requirements, specifications, guidelines, or characteristics that can be used consistently to ensure that materials, products, processes, and services are fit for their purpose. The premise is "one country, one vote." Member countries field a technical expertise team referred to as a mirror committee or, in the US, a Technical Advisory Group (TAG). These TAGs comprise volunteers from all areas of industry. They focus on their area of specialization to develop, review, and revise international standards by providing the US position vote to the ISO member organization, the American National Standards Institute (ANSI).

ASABE is accredited by ANSI to coordinate and develop the US position in fifteen distinct areas of international standards development. Each of these areas has an associated ASABE technical committee, made up of US experts from a diverse range of backgrounds, to establish the US position in these areas.

TAGs operate in a manner that complies with all applicable ANSI and ISO/IEC procedures.
