The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) Approves New Quality Information Framework (QIF) Standard

ANSINew QIF™ V1.0 Standard: A Significant Breakthrough for the Metrology Industry

Burleson, Texas, USA December 23, 2013 — The (DMSC) Dimensional Metrology Standards Consortium announced today the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) has approved QIF v1.0 (Quality Information Framework, version 1.0) as an ANSI standard. This new standard covers the digital interoperability needs for a wide variety of use cases including feature-based dimensional metrology, quality measurement planning, first article inspection, and discrete quality measurement.

ANSI approval of QIF v1.0 indicates that QIF has attained a consensus approval from a large number of subject matter experts in the digital metrology industry.  The QIF standard was designed to meet the highest industry requirements and to satisfy technological gaps that have traditionally cost industry hundreds of millions of dollars annually. The DMSC has met, and continues to meet the need for urgently required national standards in quality measurement in a timely fashion. ANSI’s accredited Standards Developing Organizations (SDOs) operate in accordance with national and often international guidelines, and have been verified by government and peer review assessments. The ANSI Board of Standards Review (BSR) approved the standard on December 19, 2013.


The Dimensional Metrology Standards Consortium announces that the QIF v1.0 (Quality Information Framework) draft standard is now available for public review in the ANSI weekly publication called Standards Action.  To participate in the formal ANSI public review and comment process, please go to for more information.  The public review period is from September 20, 2013, to November 4, 2013.
