The culture of the DOE community will be based on standards. Technical standards will formally integrate part of all DOE facility, program and project activities. The DOE will be recognized as a participant in the use and development of technical standards. The Technical Standards Program will be a benchmark for efficiency, value and support for the DOE customer.
In support of the Department's Standards Program and in partnership with all stakeholders, the mission is to enhance DOE's transition to a standards-based culture by providing information, coordinating activities, and promoting the use of consensus standards, and when needed, the development of DOE technical standards.
