US TAG 2019-01-16T07:29:25+00:00

What is the US TAG?

In order to establish a true standard there must be processes and procedures that allow for equal participation among all interested parties. US technical experts to the ISO Technical Committees are organized into Technical Advisory Groups (TAG), which formulate the US position on ISO TC matters. These positions are formally submitted by ANSI, as the US voting member to the International Organization for Standardization (ISO).

Any individual or organization based in the United States of America that has an interest in standards development is encouraged to participate through the ANSI accredited Technical Advisory Group (TAG).

ISO TC 184 – Automation Systems and Integration

ISO TC 184 is the ISO technical committee responsible for the development of ISO 8000 – the international standard for data quality.

The committee is organized into three sub-committees:

  • TC 184/SC 1 Physical device control

  • TC 184/SC 4 Industrial data

  • TC 184/SC 5 Architecture, communications and integration frameworks

ECCMA is the ANSI accredited administrator of the US TAG to TC 184, subcommittees SC 4 and SC 5.The US does not currently participate in SC 1.
