Subject: 	[members] OASIS completes ANSI Accreditation to develop 
Standards designated ANS

I am pleased to announce that OASIS is now accredited by the American 
National Standards Institute (ANSI). OASIS Standards are now eligible 
for American National Standard (ANS) designation.

ANSI Accreditation is independent confirmation that the OASIS Process 
and infrastructure adhere to the globally-accepted principles of 
transparency, balance and openness that are the ANSI Essential 
Requirements.  ANSI is the latest well-known standards organization to 
formally recognize the OASIS process; others include the International 
Organization for Standardization (ISO), the International 
Telecommunication Union (ITU), Joint Technical Committee 1 (JTC1) of ISO 
and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC)

OASIS members are encouraged to consider the benefits of ANS status for 
their specifications.  The process for submitting for ANS designation 
may be engaged for all specifications developed in OASIS - past, present 
and future. The specific steps necessary to submit work in compliance 
with the ANSI Essential Requirements are recorded in the ANSI Addendum 
to the OASIS Liaison Policy. [1]  Staff is ready to help with the process.

Feel free to contact me with any questions or comments about this 
exciting new opportunity for OASIS Standards,



Scott McGrath
