The Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation (AAMI) is a nonprofit organization formed by approximately 7000 professionals. The AAMI standards program consists of over 100 technical committees and working groups that produce Standards, Recommended Practices, and Technical Information Reports for medical devices.
AAMI also manages international technical committees that develop international standards and administers U.S. technical advisory groups (TAGs) that participate in the development of international standards on behalf of the U.S. The international aspects of the AAMI standards program are governed by the policies and procedures of the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC), and ANSI.
Through its national and international technical committees and advisory groups, AAMI plays a significant global role in the development of medical device standards.
