Publisher of NISO standards approved by ANSI[edit]

Currently the Wikipedia article states:

NISO approved standards are published by ANSI.

No citation given and it's not true. As I write, I have the latest copy of Z39.29-2005 (R2010) Bibliographic References open in front of me. On the title page, it states that it has been published by the National Information Standards Organization, NISO Press, Bethesda, Maryland, U.S.A viz [1]:

Abstract: This standard provides rules, guidelines, and examples for the creation of bibliographic references to numerous types of print, audiovisual, and electronic materials, both published and unpublished, arranged in fifteen broad categories. The bibliographic references should result in the unique identification of most print and non-print materials. This standard is intended for a broad audience, including the creators of bibliographic references, the processors who publish and otherwise display references, and the ultimate users of the references.
