U.S. Celebrates World Standards Day

Standardization has long been an important engine for innovation and economic growth. As the world transitions to a truly global economy, standards have taken on special significance, helping to assure that organizations everywhere can compete on a level economic playing field. This year the U.S. will celebrate World Standards Day – Standards Level the Playing Field – by focusing on how standards stimulate trade and overcome artificial trade barriers, helping to make companies, industries, and economies more competitive. The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) will co-chair the  U.S. Celebration of World Standards Day (WSD) in Washington D.C. on October 23, highlighting the important work done by standards, codes, and conformity assessment to stimulate trade, overcome trade barriers, and make industries and economies more competitive.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank the 100+ ISO/TC 131 – fluid power systems and U.S. TAG volunteers for their dedication, hard work and diligence as they help make the fluid power industry and world a better place to work and live.

There are many opportunities to join in the efforts. Click here if you would like to learn how to get involved in the fluid power systems Standards development.
