|Abstract:||The BFRL International Standards Workshop was held on June 29 and 30, 2009 to identify opportunities for standards development organizations and U.S. industry to optimize their global competitiveness through standards, codes, and practices. For the first time, researchers, practitioners and standards development organizations from across industries fire protection, building energy, building materials, structural safety and performance, and construction were brought to the table to compare and contrast perspectives. This two-day workshop engaged leaders from key U.S. building and fire safety standards and codes organizations and the industries that rely on them to: 1. Gain a clear understanding of their high-level approaches to international engagement; 2. Identify their needs for technical assistance support that fit within the NIST/BFRL mission.|
