1. Upon receipt of a valid application, the Head of Division shall make a preliminary determination as to whether the application contains a claim. A request for rectification must make a complaint if, solely on the basis of the allegations made in the request and assuming that they are true and accurate, it reasonably proves that the information disseminated was based on incorrect application or non-application of applicable guidelines and standards on the quality of the information published. In other words, to make a claim, a correction request must effectively claim that NIST has released information that does not comply with applicable information quality guidelines and standards. NIST does not offer certifications, but develops and promotes guidelines for federal agencies. NIST participates in community outreach programs and roundtables, soliciting input from government, academia, and industry that is used to develop standards and guidelines. NIST standards are constantly updated. NIST`s mission is to promote U.S. innovation and industrial competitiveness by advancing measurement science, standards, and technology in ways that increase economic security and improve our quality of life. The National Institute of Standards and Technology (“NIST Guidelines”) guidelines, information quality standards, and management mechanism comply with Section 515, OMB Guidelines, and DOC Guidelines. NIST guidelines may be revised periodically based on experience, evolving National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) requirements, and public concerns. The information covered disseminated by NIST complies with all applicable OMB guidelines, DOC guidelines, and NIST guidelines. NIST is committed to maintaining a high level of quality in the information it disseminates.
2. Where a first refusal has been made of information forming part of a provision or other provision referred to in Section III.B.7. and there is an administrative appeal mechanism, such as a review procedure, an appeal is considered in accordance with that procedure. Although information provided to specific customers is not “disseminated” for the purposes of these information quality standards, NIST`s commitment to quality also extends to this information. For example, NIST has entered into a mutual recognition agreement with the International Committee on Weights and Measures (CIPM), under which NIST has established a system for quality assurance of measurement service results for clients. NIST lists its standards on its official website. The standards and resources provided are based on international best practices, are technology-neutral, and can be implemented by organizations of all sizes and federal institutions. Standards.gov is your path to standard solutions.
The NIST Standards Coordination Office provides tools, programs, services, and educational resources on documentation standards and conformity assessment. relevant documentation standards and conformity assessment information freely available to the general public; and “Highly influential scientific assessment” means influential scientific information that the Agency or the Administrator of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs of the Bureau of Management and Budget qualifies as a scientific assessment that: (i) could have a potential impact of more than $500 million per year, or (ii) is new, controversial or unprecedented, or is of significant interinstitutional interest. Pre-release and peer review of influential scientific information: The OMB guidelines characterize a subset of the organization`s information as “influential” and apply stricter quality standards for the dissemination of information considered influential. In particular, where an agency is responsible for disseminating influential scientific, financial or statistical information, the Agency`s guidelines shall provide for a high level of transparency in terms of data and methodologies in order to facilitate the replicability of such information by qualified third parties. Additional requirements for influential scientific information (including influential scientific assessments) can be found in Directive M-05-03, the OMB`s Final Information Quality Report Card for Peer Review (OMB Peer Review Bulletin), which requires agencies to peer review “influential” scientific information before it is released.  Program managers should consider an NIST information product to have influence if it represents an official views of the Agency and falls within the guidance of M-19-15, Improving the Implementation of the Information Quality Act (24. Standards provide industries and innovators with a common language that facilitates trade, simplifies transactions and allows people to work together towards broader common goals that transcend disciplines and borders. NIST supports standards development by identifying areas where they are needed, bringing stakeholders together, and providing technical and scientific advice and expertise to help stakeholders reach consensus. This glossary contains only terms and definitions taken verbatim from NIST Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS), NIST Special Publications (SPS), and NIST Internal/Interagency Reports (IRs) on cybersecurity and privacy, and CNSSI-4009 from the Committee on National Security Systems (CNSS). Only terms defined in final publications – not drafts – are included here. The following standards of utility and integrity apply to all information disseminated by NIST. The standards of objectivity for each of the specific categories of information disseminated by NIST are also listed below.
Since most of the standards presented in this document reflect existing practice at NIST, this has been used in the description. Regardless of the time used, a performance standard is provided. NIST signs a Memorandum of Understanding with the Standards Council of Canada to enhance collaboration on documentation, conformity assessment and accreditation standards. NIST`s Standards Coordination Office (SCO) and the Standards Council of Canada (SCC) signed a memorandum of understanding on April 6 to enhance collaboration on documentation, conformity assessment, and accreditation standards. The MoU includes collaboration in emerging technology areas such as AI and participation in the International Standardization Cooperation Network (ISCN), which is also being pursued with the U.S./EU Technical Standards Working Groups on TTC and Quad. This standards cooperation will improve our harmonization of international standardization work and create an environment that will reduce technical barriers to trade in North America. NIST awards funding to five universities to advance standards education NIST has awarded five awards totaling nearly $500,000 to support standard education in student and graduate curricula. Disciplines supported by this year`s awards include aerospace; Robotics; sustainability, infrastructure improvements and resilience; nanomaterials engineering; and building information modelling.
