U.S. Senate Candidate Daryl Guberman Ignites Call For The Defunding Of
NIST In Visit To Capital Hill. ( free-pr-online.com) 

The American Board of Accredited Certifications (ABAC) calls for
lawmakers to immediately defund the National Institute of Standards
Technology (NIST).

Washington, D.C. (USA), July 28th, 2017 — Daryl Guberman
(http://www.darylguberman.com, candidate for U.S. Senate (I-CT)
recently visited Capital Hill to call for federal authorities and
lawmakers to investigate an accreditation scheme involving
government-corporate collusion between the National Institute of
Standards Technology (NIST), The ANSI-ASQ National Accreditation Board
(ANAB) and affiliated organizations. Guberman’s Washington’s visit
came weeks after the FTC received complaints of anti-competitive
practices and collusion between NIST, ANAB and the International
Accreditation Forum (IAF).

Guberman intended to meet with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC),
Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Department of Commerce, and the
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to provide documentation with
evidence of alleged collusion, violation of antitrust laws, and
corporate fraud involving an anti-competitive accreditation scheme
that is misleading U.S. businesses.

While in Washington, Guberman called for investigation of several
individuals allegedly behind the scheme, including Randy Dougherty,
the former Vice President of ANAB
(http://aboac.org/accreditation-myths) and previous Chairman of IAF;
Erik Puskar, the accreditation director for NIST and the Vice-Chair
for ANSI Committee on Education (COE); Peter Unger, the Former
President of American Association for Laboratory Accreditation (A2LA),
Lonnie Spires present CEO of A2LA; and S. Joe Bhatia, President and
CEO of the American National Standards Institute (ANSI).

Guberman said NIST, ANSI, ANAB and IAF are colluding to restrain
competition by utilizing Government power and influence to promote an
anti-competitive accreditation scheme operated primarily by privately
owned ANAB and its sister operation IAF while both entities remained
under the leadership of Mr. Dougherty. More details on the collusion
can be found on Guberman’s company website at

“As a measurement standards laboratory, and a non-regulatory agency of
the United States Department of Commerce, NIST is abusing its power
and influence by colluding with The ANSI-ASQ National Accreditation
Board (ANAB), which is owned by the American National Standards
Institute (ANSI) & The American Society of Quality (ASQ),” said
Guberman. He added, “Under no circumstances should our government be
engaging in monopolistic conduct, condoning anti-competitive business
practices, or conspiring with privately-owned entities to restrain

Guberman’s Washington trip was accompanied by Donald LaBelle, Chairman
of ABAC – The American Board of Accredited Certifications
(http://www.aboac.org), a leading independent accreditation body in
the United States. LaBelle said businesses are being hoodwinked into
an accreditation racket without an alternative choice because the
government (NIST) is putting its nose where it does not belong. “The
NIST-ANSI-ANAB accreditation scheme is crony capitalism in its most
disturbing form, a well-oiled international money grab that is
funneling millions of dollars from taxpayers into the greedy pockets
of government perpetrators and their corporate accomplices behind the
accreditation sham,” said LaBelle

Guberman has recently launched a series of videos on Youtube unmasking
the NIST-ANSI-ANAB-IAF accreditation scheme and the department heads
behind the racket. In one video, Guberman discusses the
anti-competitive practices of NIST and its conspiracies in restraint
of trade by setting discriminative requirements thereby forcing
businesses to utilize ISO registrars over-seen by entities belonging
to the ANSI-ANAB-IAF monopoly. The video can be found at
