Summary:
Those looking for the latest product standards-related news, regulatory developments, events and workshops around the world now can turn to the new Global Standards Information (GSI) website.

Those looking for the latest product standards-related news, regulatory developments, events and workshops around the world now can turn to the new Global Standards Information (GSI) Web site (http://gsi.nist.gov). Launched on Sept. 1, 2010, the new site includes a variety of interactive tools and will serve as an essential "first stop" for users seeking up-to-date information on international product standards.

"Given the rapid adoption and complexity of new product standards both locally and globally, we realized we needed to create a new way for our customers to find and share information," says Gordon Gillerman, chief of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Standards Services Division. "We created this site with the goal of providing the most up-to-date information in an engaging and easy-to-use format."

Visitors to the site are greeted by a large, colorful and interactive world map, which enables them to drill down to a specific region or country to find key fast facts and contacts, the latest global standards news and events, in-depth resources, and highlights of proposed regulations that may affect product market access.

A key feature of the GSI Web site is the ability for visitors to register to receive customized email updates for specific regions or on topics of interest to them. In the coming months, the site will offer additional multimedia features and specialized regional and local content.
