ISO TC 130 & U.S. Technical Advisory Group

(US TAG) to ISO TC130

NPES The Association for Suppliers of Printing, Publishing and Converting Technologies serves as the Secretariat of the US TAG to ISO TC 130 (Graphic Technology).

ABOUT THE US TAG AND TC130

The U.S. Technical Advisory Group (US TAG) to TC 130 consists of experts from the industry who provide guidance to The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) on the development of the U.S. position on International Standards relating to the graphic arts.

The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) Technical Committee 130 (Graphic Technology) develops standards for the graphic arts industry. The United States is a participating, or P-member, of ISO TC 130. In order for the U.S. to participate in the ISO work, there must be an ANSI-accredited U.S. Technical Advisory Group (TAG) for each ISO TC in which the U.S. has an interest. Those TAGs provide the U.S. technical experts to the ISO committees, and formulate the U.S. position on the ISO TC matters, which is formally submitted by ANSI as the voting member body.
