American National Standards Institute

A body founded in 1918 that helps co-ordinate US voluntary standards efforts and acts as the approval body, which recognises documents developed by other national organisations—e.g., American National Standards. ANSI acts as the US representative in international and regional standards efforts, and serving as a clearinghouse for standards development information.
