Date: 2018-01-19    Source:ISO website   

John Walter served as ISO President-elect in 2017 in advance of a two-year term as ISO President, beginning in January, 2018. Mr Walter previously served as ISO Vice-President (policy) for the period 2014-2016 during which time his duties included leadership of ISO's Strategy and Policy Committee, supporting implementation of the ISO Strategic Plan, and ensuring effective communication on strategic issues within ISO and with its stakeholders. Mr Walter will soon retire as the Chief Executive Officer of the Standards Council of Canada (SCC), Canada's member body to ISO. Since his appointment in 2009, Mr Walter has initiated a productive dialogue with senior decision-makers from industry and government in order to establish Canada's strategic standardization priorities. This dialogue led to the implementation of innovative solutions to support Canada's standardization priorities such as the accreditation of new standards development organizations; the systematic monitoring of thousands of standards in government regulations; and the development of new standards to help deploy leading-edge technologies. In addition to his duties at SCC, Mr Walter helped strengthen international standardization by actively participating in ISO's Technical Management Board (TMB) and by assisting regional organizations such as the Pan American Standards Commission (COPANT) and the Pacific Area Standards Congress (PASC) to set new strategic priorities. Mr Walter was appointed as an advisor on the China Standardization Expert Committee (CSEC) of the Standardization Administration of the People's Republic of China (SAC).
