Participate in Developing Standards

NSF is accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) to develop American National Standards. ANSI's accreditation verifies that NSF/ANSI standards are developed through the involvement of stakeholders who are directly affected by the scope of the standard. To participate in creating or revising a standard, you can:

  • Submit public review, comments or an issue document suggesting revisions
  • Attend a joint committee or task group meeting as an observer
  • Join an NSF task group that provides recommendations to the responsible joint committee on a specific issue
  • Join an NSF joint committee, the consensus body responsible for the development and revision of NSF/ANSI standards

NSF is looking for stakeholders to participate in the standards development process. If you are interested or want further information, email and identify your area of interest.
