About Standards Development
The AAMI standards program consists of over 100 technical committees and working groups that produce Standards, Recommended Practices, and Technical Information Reports for medical devices.
Standards and Recommended Practices represent a national consensus and many have been approved by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) as American National Standards. AAMI also administers a number of international technical committees of the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC), as well as U.S. Technical Advisory Groups (TAGs).
There are many ways to become involved. You can:
- Submit a New Work Item Proposal
- Join a Technical Committee
- List of Technical Committees
- Find and Review Public Review Drafts
- Attend Meetings
For more information, contact AAMI's Standards Department — firstname.lastname@example.org.
