Standards Boost Business: Show your support

Standards help companies across the United States to reduce costs, increase efficiencies, facilitate market access, and gain more competitive advantage.

By filling out the form on the right side of the page, you are demonstrating your recognition that standards and conformity assessment are a vital component of the U.S. economy. We’ll add you to our mailing list and keep you apprised of the status of the initiative. And you may see your comments about how standards boost your bottom line posted throughout this website.

Showing your support by filling out the form is just the first step. Here are some more suggestions of ways you can support our nation’s robust standardization system and the many entities that make our success possible:


Educate your colleagues and executive leadership

Without a proper understanding of the value of standards and conformance, some organizations have seen standards development as a logical place to start making cuts – both in terms of funding and manpower. Take a look at the toolkit for some valuable resources that will help you show your colleagues – in concrete, easy-to-understand terms – just how important standards and conformance are to their business

Submit a case study with results-oriented metrics

Do you have a great standards or conformance success story? Tell us about it and we will put it up on the case studies page for all to see. We need to show executives how standards and conformance are increasing efficiency, saving money, and earning and maintaining market access, and concise, results-focused case studies are a great way to do it.

"Standards are the guideline for future success. Without standards, you will guess at what should be instead of knowing what it has to be."

Beyond the bottom line: standards impact quality, lead-time, factory flexibility, and supply chain management.
Standardization and conformity assessment activities lead to lower costs by reducing redundancy, minimizing errors, and reducing time to market.
Demonstrating compliance to standards helps your products, services, and personnel to cross borders. Standards also make cross-border interoperability possible, ensuring that products manufactured in one country can be sold and used in another.
 
Businesses not only reduce the economic risk of their research and development activities by participating in standardization, they can also lower their overall R&D costs by relying on previously standardized technologies and terminologies.
