The Automation Standards Compliance Institute (ASCI) is a non-profit organization incorporated by ISA in 2006 to provide a home for certification, conformance, and compliance assessment activities in the automation arena. ASCI extends the work that ISA has conducted for 50 years in standards development by facilitating the effective implementation of automation industry standards.
ISA provides professional management services to ASCI, drawing on an experienced staffing, financial, and administrative infrastructure.
The ISA100 Wireless Compliance Institute functions as an operational group within ASCI. ASCI bylaws share the open constructs of ISA, while accounting for compliance organization requirements. Operating the ISA100 Wireless Compliance Institute within ASCI allows the organization to efficiently leverage the organizational infrastructure of ASCI.
ASCI, in partnership with ISA, developed the specific actions necessary to formally launch the ISA100 Wireless Compliance Institute.
