Assuring cooperation among federal agencies to promote effective, consistent standards policies
The Interagency Committee on Standards Policy (ICSP) brings together officials from each of the relevant federal agencies to foster standardization activities—such as standards development, product testing, quality system registration, certification, and accreditation.
The Interagency Committee advises federal agencies on matters related to standards policy, as required under the National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act of 1995 (NTTAA). It reports to the Secretary of Commerce through the Director of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the Director of NIST’s Standards Coordination Office (SCO).
