ANSI Workshop Report: Standards for Disaster Resilience for Buildings and Physical Infrastructure Systems

Thursday, February 2, 2012

Since 2003, the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) Homeland Security Standards Panel (HSSP) has worked to accelerate the development of voluntary standards for homeland security and emergency preparedness in support of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate. 

As part of that continuing effort, the HSSP convened the workshop: Standards for Disaster Resilience for Buildings and Physical Infrastructure Systems, on November 10, 2011, in Arlington, VA. This interactive workshop provided an opportunity for all participants – government, standards developers, program developers, and small businesses – to engage in an open dialogue and gain knowledge about all related issues and challenges.
