Syllabus | Standards Michigan




June 24, 2021

Our daily colloquia are typically doing sessions; with non-USA titles receiving priority until 16:00 UTC and all other titles thereafter.  We assume policy objectives are established (Safer-Simpler-Lower-Cost, Longer-Lasting).   Because we necessarily get into the weeds, and much of the content is time-sensitive and copyright protected, we usually have to schedule a separate time slot to hammer on technical specifics and to register comments on open consultations.

We have been doing it this way every day since 2013 and this way works.

1.  Nota Bene.  Typically ASHRAE, IEEE, ASTM, ESTA, NSF, SCTE, UL, AGA and NFPA consultations open within the next 30-45 days (ANSI Continuous Maintenance Standard Development Organizations)

2. ANSI ISO and USNC/IEC Consultations
– ANSI seeks comments on AFNOR proposal for a new ISO project: Guidelines for the Promotion and Implementation of Gender Equality.   Query Steve Cornish ( for the prospectus.
