W. CONSHOHOCKEN, PA – The ASTM Board of Directors has authorized ASTM’s management to develop certification services. Titled the ASTM International Certification Programs, the new initiative offers the opportunity for certification of products (materials, products, services and systems) as well as personnel.
Potential benefits of the program include increased confidence, reliable product comparisons, equitable testing and rating, potential liability reduction, and the facilitation of regulatory compliance.
Requests for an ASTM program may come from ASTM technical committees or directly from industry, purchasers or government bodies. A product certified through ASTM’s program would be tested, at the direction of ASTM International, by a third-party laboratory to determine the product’s ability to conform to one or more of ASTM's standards.
