Dr. Naqibullah Faiq has from the start endeavored to raise ANSA to be an active, service driven authority regardless of the challenges faced both materially and culturally with the understanding and acceptance of standardization throughout all levels of public, private and civil demographics.
The fact that standards related activities are rare and can cause confusion among the public and organizations there is a reluctance to transfer these responsibilities to ANSA. Bringing standardization to an international level in Afghanistan is a serious challenge, yet one that Dr. Faiq has determined to bring to fruition.
