IT Governance (ITG) is expanding the company’s international presence with a new deal to sell American National Standards Institute (ANSI) standards through: www.itgovernanceusa.com. The standards are a vehicle for the adoption of ISO27000 standards in the US. ITG, the one-stop shop for compliance expertise, already has similar reseller agreements with leading standards bodies including IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission) and BSI (British Standards Institution). Alan Calder, Chief Executive of IT Governance, says: “We continue to grow and grow. This deal proves, yet again, that ITG offers an unparalleled range of compliance expertise, both online and in person.” ITG will particularly concentrate on selling ANSI’s IT-related standards, although the new agreement actually allows the company to sell ANSI’s entire range of standards. Calder continues: “We’ll be selling the ANSI standards both as stand-alone products and within the US versions of our very popular information security management system toolkits.
“It’s great to know that ANSI recognizes the quality of ITG USA as a distributor. I’m sure we’ll be welcoming new customers as a result of this deal. Our many established US customers already know that we offer a top-class service – a broad range of publications at industry-leading prices – through a site that is easy to navigate and use. We increasingly offer downloadable products alongside traditional hard copies, which is not only convenient, but also brings environmental benefits.”
ANSI is the voice of the US standards and conformity assessment system. The Institute oversees the creation and use of thousands of standards and guidelines that directly impact businesses in nearly every sector of US industry. ANSI is the official US representative to the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). The Institute’s mission statement is: “To enhance both the global competitiveness of US business and the US quality of life by promoting and facilitating voluntary consensus standards and conformity assessment systems, and safeguarding their integrity."
