Quick Fire Sessions on ESTA’s American National Standards

Brought to you by: 

ProSight

ESTA’s Technical Standards Manager, Karl Ruling, and Assistant Manager, Erin Grabe, explain why the standard exists and what problem it was intended to solve. They walk you through how the standard is structured, some of the key issues the working group faced in drafting the standard and how they went about achieving consensus, and highlight some of the most important concepts in the document. After listening to one of these sessions, you’ll be able to dive right into the standard.
