U.S. Celebration of World Standards Day 2019
July 19, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Codes and standards keep workers safe through fatigue risk management and protect building occupants through structural resilience, fire prevention, and air quality requirements.
This briefing will feature speakers from The American Petroleum Institute (API), International Code Council (ICC), National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE), and American National Standards Institute (ANSI) who will expand on their ongoing work to safeguard our energy infrastructure and
discuss the role modern codes and standards play in keeping us all safe at our work and in our homes and schools. Speakers will also discuss the importance of continued federal investment into research to advance code and standard development and through incentives to encourage broader code and standard adoption. This is a widely attended event, and lunch will be provided. The
event will also feature exhibits from standards developing organizations and networking opportunities.
