Ophthalmic standards committee reps needed

ARVO is joining the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) Z80 standards committee and is seeking U.S.-based representatives to serve as liaisons. ANSI addresses standards for ophthalmic and optic devices. Candidates should have appropriate vision technical expertise and a global view of issues/risks associated with international medical device manufacturing. Until representatives are appointed, ARVO’s assistant director of science policy & programs will temporarily serve as a liaison.

Appointed representatives will be required to participate for at least two years. Participation requirements include:

  • Travel to two in-person meetings per year for 1 - 2 days (location: Alexandria, Va. and Florida)
  • Active participation in one or more subcommittees (held the second day of in-person meetings)
  • Review e-mail communications approximately every two weeks
  • Make recommendations how ARVO votes on ballot issues

Interested members should contact Bobbie Austin before February 18, 2011.
