The first ASTM Standard was published in 1993. The actual development of that Standard began in the late 1980s. As will be explained in more detail, Superfund Liability was the driving force behind the development of the Standard. The actual law, titled the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act, commonly referred to as CERCLA or Superfund, was passed on 11 December 1980.
