  • New Standards and Technical Reports
    INCITS standards and technical reports that have been recently approved and waiting for publication.
  • INCITS Technical Reports
    Technical reports are informational or tutorial in nature, and they do not contain matter implying that they are normative. They are produced, in some cases, to disseminate the technical and logical concepts reflected in standards already published or under development. In other cases, they derive from studies in areas where it is found premature to develop a standard due to a still changing technology, or inappropriate to develop a rigorous standard due to the existence of a number of viable options, the choice of which depends on the user’s particular requirements. INCITS has two types of technical reports: 

    • those approved and published by INCITS as INCITS Technical Reports, and
    • those approved and published by INCITS and registered with ANSI
  • INCITS Approved Standards
    The list of approved standards are projects that were developed using the national process as defined by the INCITS procedures.  These are the projects that are designed as "".

INCITS Adopted Standards
INCITS policy is to adopt as “Identical” American National Standards all ISO/IEC or ISO standards that fall within its program of work, with exceptions as outlined in our procedures.  INCITS follows the “Expedited Procedures for the Identical Adoption of an ISO or IEC standard as an American National Standard.” 

INCITS Stabilized Standards
Whenever it is determined that a standard has ongoing validity and effectiveness, but is mature and unlikely to require maintenance of any sort, it can be designated as a stabilized standard that removes the requirement for periodic review.
