On May 25, 2011, the American National Standards Institute Homeland Security Standards Panel (ANSI-HSSP) will host “Achieving Preparedness through Standards Implementation: Challenges and Opportunities for Small Businesses” — a workshop focusing on the unique needs of small businesses in preparing for unforeseen challenges.
The goal of the workshop is to identify actions needed to better reflect small business considerations with regard to preparedness standards and conformity assessment. A final report outlining findings and recommendations from the workshop will be published following the event.
Through a series of moderated panel discussions, the workshop seeks to foster dialogue among small businesses, standards developing organizations, federal agencies, and other stakeholders to support private-sector preparedness (PS-Prep) through voluntary consensus standards and conformance activities.
The workshop will be held on May 25, 2011, at the Executive Conference Center in Arlington, VA. Attendance is free of charge, but all attendees must register by May 11, 2011.
