NIST Requests Public Input on National Strategy to Ensure US Technology Leadership

The National Institute of Standards and Technology has posted a request for information on the best implementation approaches to the U.S. Government National Standards Strategy for Critical and Emerging Technology.

The inputs that NIST seeks from the public include partnership avenues with stakeholders, dismantling participation barriers in international standards development and enhancing U.S. government support for an open, consensus-based and private-sector-led international standards system.

The RFI fields questions about investment, participation, workforce, and integrity and exclusivity on the various technologies under the strategy.

The technologies covered include semiconductors and microelectronics, artificial intelligence and machine learning, positioning, navigation and timing services, clean energy generation and storage, and biotechnologies.

According to Commerce Undersecretary for Standards and Technology and NIST Director Laurie Locascio, high-quality standards for emerging technologies are critical to the U.S. economy and national security. She asked for the “best ideas for implementing a national strategy that will strengthen U.S. leadership and competitiveness” in each technology sector.

NIST listening sessions and stakeholder events about the USG NSSCET will be held while the RFI is open. Interested parties have until Nov. 6 to submit responses, NIST said.
