The processes and procedures used to develop both ANSI and International Standards can appear daunting and unwieldy to newcomers to the world of standards. However, once understood, these processes and procedures can become valuable resources in the development of the co-operative agreements that we call standards. This is particularly true in the area of image quality for electronic system specification, measurement and design - the subject of this conference. This is a subject area where the interests of several different application technologies converge as do the responsibilities of several different standards communities. A brief overview of the structure of ANSI, ISO, and IEC will be given, along with a roadmap of the key groups (and their inter-relationships) applicable to image quality. A summary will be given of the key image-quality standardization activities currently underway in these groups. This overview will draw on practical examples of the issues, challenges and solutions experienced by the author in many years of involvement in both ANSI and ISO standards activities, particularly in ISO/TC130 (Graphic technology) and ISO/TC42 (Photography), which are two of the key committees that have a vested interest in image quality and color reproduction in digital systems.
