The AAMI standards program consists of over 100 technical committees and working groups that produce Standards, Recommended Practices, and Technical Information Reports for medical devices.

Standards and Recommended Practices represent a national consensus and many have been approved by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) as American National Standards. AAMI also administers a number of international technical committees of the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC), as well as U.S. Technical Advisory Groups (TAGs).
