About HI Committees

    • HI Logo

      Standards are an essential part of our national economy as we are a market-driven society. HI’s participation in the development of standards contributes to the global economy by meeting the needs of our stakeholders. We do this by contributing our technical expertise, shared goals, intellectual strength and resources and have been doing this since 1917.

      Committees are comprised of HI Members, Associate Members and Partners.

      Why should you participate in the Technical Committees?

      • HI members work through a number of technical committees to develop draft standards and to represent their company’s interests. 
      • HI members, associate members and standards partners are encouraged to appoint representatives to all standards- and guideline-writing committees in which they have interest and expertise.
      • By actively participating, you ensure that the experience you have gained with your company’s own products is taken into consideration alongside that of all other participating manufacturers.
      • Develop standard methods that will ensure your products are designed, specified, tested, applied, installed, and are operated to industry best practices.  Limiting end users issues and warranty claims.
      • Committee participation provides Young Engineering Leaders with an opportunity to learn from the best and the brightest engineers in the pump industry.
      • HI’s technical leadership draws from the pump industry’s best, brightest, and most experienced pump engineers. For these engineers, participating in standards development committees provides a unique opportunity to learn from and share experiences with their veteran counterparts at other companies.

      HI Staff serves as the committee project manager, where committee membership is generally on a volunteer basis. Interested parties shall notify the Committee Chair and/or HI Staff to be added to the committee roster. Active participation is a requirement of continued membership and such will be monitored by the Committee Vice-Chair and will be reviewed at each Annual meeting. Today, HI members actively collaborate in the development and updating of over 30 ANSI/HI pump standards and a growing library of pump-related guidebooks and educational materials.
