The ANSI BSR is primarily responsible for the approval and withdrawal of American National Standards. The functions of the BSR include, but may not be limited to: implementing procedures for the approval and withdrawal of standards as American National Standards and adjudicating questions or conflicts that develop in the standards approval procedure; determining whether standards submitted to the Institute for approval or withdrawal as American National Standards meet the requirements of the Institute; and, acting on all requests for approval, reaffirmation, revision, and withdrawal of American National Standards. Congratulations, Teresa!
