American National Standards Institute (ANSI)
A non-profit organization that sponsors industry standards for information management and financial communication.
    
The American Bankers Association has responsibility for the ANSI financial industry standards committee (ANSI X9). The American National Standards Institute or ANSI is a private organization that oversees the development of voluntary consensus standards for products, services, processes, systems, and personnel in the United States. The organization also coordinates U.S. standards with international standards so that American products can be used internationally. For example, standards make sure that people who own cameras can find the film they need for them anywhere around the globe.
    
ANSI accredits standards that are developed by representatives of standards developing organizations, government agencies, consumer groups, companies, and others. These standards make sure that the characteristics and performance of products are consistent, that people use the same definitions and terms, and that products are tested the same way. ANSI also accredits organizations that carry out product or personnel certification in accordance with requirements defined in international standards.
    
ANSI's operations office is located in New York City and the organization's headquarters are in Washington, DC.
