These procedures for U.S. Technical Advisory Groups (U.S. TAGs) meet the requirements for due process and coordination in the development of U.S. positions for ISO activities as given in Annex B of the ANSI Procedures for U.S. Participation in the International Standards Activities of ISO. A U.S. TAG consists of its members and its U.S. TAG Administrator. A particular U.S. TAG is related to a particular ISO committee (e.g., "U.S. TAG for ISO/TC xx.").
Subgroups of U.S. TAGs or separate U.S. TAGs may be formed to relate to subcommittees of an ISO technical committee. Where the U.S. TAG to an ISO subcommittee is not independently accredited in accordance with 2.5.4 of the ANSI Procedures for U.S. Participation in the International Standards Activities of ISO, the degree of independent authority to take actions shall be defined in writing (as part of the TAG procedures, or as a policy or agreement) and shall be approved by the parent U.S. TAG, and a copy provided to ANSI.
