Transparency: A foundation for standards development

Posted August 5, 2021

 

RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. – AATCC Standards are developed, specified and performed around the world. With such a global reach, transparency must serve as the foundation for standards development.

 

AATCC Standards adhere to the six principles defined by the World Trade Organization (WTO) for the development of international standards.

 

  • Transparency

  • Openness

  • Impartiality and Consensus 

  • Effectiveness and Relevance

  • Coherence

  • Development Dimension

AATCC takes practical measures to refrain from duplicating standards that exist in its own and other organizations. It is recognized that harmonization may not always be possible or practical in some instances, especially if it compromises the methodology's intent; however, when practical, AATCC works with other organizations to harmonize standards.

 

AATCC provides notice of developmental standards and topics under consideration by posting the research committee notes, minutes and project listings through its transparency practices. Twice a year, AATCC publishes new and existing standards.

 

AATCC affords sympathetic consideration and adequate opportunity for consultation regarding representations with its open committee membership policy. Any interested party may join a research committee as a non-voting member. Ideation, diverse perspectives and consensus are the cornerstones of AATCC standard development.
