AIA was a proud sponsor of the U.S. Celebration of World Standards Day this October in Washington, D.C. The event was hosted by the American National Standards Institute and the National Institute of Standards and Technology and provided an opportunity for standards developers to share information about their organizations with the standards and conformity assessment community. The theme of World Standards Day this year was “Less waste, better results – Standards increase efficiency.”
World Standards Day is celebrated each year on October 14th in recognition of the efforts of thousands of volunteers involved in international standards development activities through the International Electrotechnical Commission, the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the International Telecommunication Union. The U.S. Celebration was held on October 11th this year.
AIA is a standards developing organization that maintains the National Aerospace Standards. In addition, AIA holds the secretariat for ISO Technical Committee 20 for Aircraft and Space Vehicles, which has oversight for more than 500 ISO standards.
