Standards are essential to commerce, allowing technology to work seamlessly and business to operate smoothly. They provide industries and innovators with a common language that facilitates trade, simplifies transactions, and enables people to work together toward greater common goals that cut across disciplines and borders.
The U.S. Government will strengthen its support for standards development in order to promote standards that are technologically sound and help American industry compete on a level playing field.
The Standards Information Center will provide resources as well as the opportunity for stakeholders to share their input. We look forward to an open dialogue between government, academia, and our industry partners. Let’s work together to build upon our existing public-private partnerships in international standards development.
We will provide updates on upcoming stakeholder events and listening sessions. Stay tuned to the Events listings.
