World Standards Day: USA almost only slightly out of whack

Most years, World Standards Day occurs in the USA on a different day than it does in other countries. This year, 2020, that tradition continues.

Rather than celebrate 2020’s World Standards Day on the same day (October 14) as other countries, the USA will celebrate World Standards day on five (5) different days, none of which quite overlaps with the world’s World Standards Day.

American World Standards Weeks is not that far off from the World Standards standard. Some of America’s days are less than a week distant from the world’s World Standards Day.

And be it noted that America’s World Standards Week establishes the principle that a week is five (5) days long.

Here is the official American announcement:

The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) has announced dates for World Standards Week 2020, which will be held October 19–23
