Definition - What does American National Standards Institute, Inc. (ANSI) mean?
The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) is the U.S. organization that, through its members in a variety of fields, develops consensus standards for services and processes, products and devices, and systems and personnel. Not only does ANSI develop these standards, it assists industry in the United States in the implementation of the standards in an effort not only to standardize services, processes, products and systems for the betterment of the United States.
Trenchlesspedia explains American National Standards Institute, Inc. (ANSI)
ANSI is responsible for the development of ANSI/SAE STANDARD J1611-AUG98, which concerns operator control of horizontal earthboring machines used in trenchless operations, DIN Spec 91322:2015, which concerns the conditions and limitations of use for HDD bore-head radar, among other standards that apply to the trenchless technology industry as a whole.
These, like the other standards promulgated by ANSI members – leading experts in their fields – and member organizations can reduce the waste and repetition of "reinventing the wheel" in the pursuit of viable products, manufacturing and other commercial activities.
