The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) has officially launched the ANSI IBR Portal, an online tool for free, read-only access to voluntary consensus standards that have been incorporated by reference (IBR) into federal laws and regulations. This interesting news was found in the article, “ANSI Launches Online Portal for Standards Incorporated by Reference.

As coordinator of the U.S. standardization system, ANSI has taken a lead role in informing the public about the reality of free standards and the economics of standards setting.

ANSI began to develop its IBR Portal with the goal of providing a single solution to this significant issue. It also provides standards developing organizations (SDOs) with the flexibility they require to safeguard their ability to develop standards.

We know that it has never been more important to approach data based on accepted and shared standards. Access Innovations is one of a very small number of companies that can help you generate ANSI/ISO/W3C-compliant taxonomies.
