AIHA Standards Activities

AIHA Standards Development

The goals for AIHA standards development activities are:

  • to ensure that AIHA obtains and maintains an appropriate level of involvement or leadership in industrial/occupational hygiene-related standards globally;

  • to encourage broader participation by AIHA in the development of international IH/OH standards while supporting and strengthening the existing domestic standards development efforts;

  • to support the development and harmonization of national and international IH/OH standards; and

  • to provide a forum for AIHA members to provide meaningful input into the standards development process.
