Course Description

Radiation safety professionals are most likely familiar with performance standards from the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and the International Organization for Standardization (ISO).  Their standards are often adopted by industry, incorporated into regulations, and/or become best practices.  Focusing on radiation protection standards committees ISO/TC 85/SC 2 and ANSI/HPS N13, the presenters will tag-team answers to some common questions:  Who are ANSI and ISO, and how are they connected? How are national standards incorporated into international standards and how are international standards adopted nationally?  What is the process for proposing and writing new standards? How are draft and adopted standards reviewed and edited? Most importantly, how can YOU get involved as a stakeholder, and what are the benefits of active participation in standards? The course will also cover the key differences in processes and style between ANSI and ISO and provide resources for proficiency in writing and editing skills.
