On Feb. 19, the American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA) became accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) as a Standards Developer.

This accreditation includes review and approval of AAMA’s document creation and maintenance program, notably AAMA balloting procedure. 


“AAMA has been developing technical standards since its inception in 1936. Since that time, the association has maintained an open consensus process that takes into account all views and aspects of the industry equally. Now, we have the proof to back that up,” say Andrea Rhodes, AAMA technical operations supervisor, who was instrumental in working with ANSI to secure the accreditation.


According to the ANSI website, “In order to maintain ANSI accreditation, standards developers are required to consistently adhere to a set of requirements or procedures known as the ANSI Essential Requirements: Due process requirements for American National Standards that govern the consensus development process. Due process is the key to ensuring that ANSs [American National Standards] are developed in an environment that is equitable, accessible and responsive to the requirements of various stakeholders. The open and fair ANS process ensures that all interested and affected parties have an opportunity to participate in a standard’s development. It also serves and protects the public interest since standards developers accredited by ANSI must meet the Institute’s requirements for openness, balance, consensus and other due process safeguards.”

More information about AAMA and its activities can be found via the AAMA Media Relations page or at the AAMA website, http://www.aamanet.org.

AAMA is the source of performance standards, product certification, and educational programs for the fenestration industry.(SM)
