"NEBB's latest standards document to be approved by ANSI represents our commitment to the high quality that NEBB certification represents. This standard demonstrates the high level of competency at which NEBB certified firms and individuals function and provides confidence that projects are completed with that same competency and quality," said NEBB president, Don Hill.
An American National Standard is a document that has been sponsored by an ANSI-accredited standards developing organization (SDO) and then approved by ANSI's Board of Standards Review (BSR) as meeting certain criteria for openness, balance, due process, and consensus in standards development. ANSI's SDO accreditation and American National Standard approval processes work in tandem to help make standards development in the U.S. an equitable and open process that serves both U.S. business and the public good.
