    Abstract

    ASTM E35 was organized in 1973 so industry, academic and government sectors can provide valuable assistance to EPA. Initially E35.22 equipment subcommittee concentrated on standard test methods characterizing equipment performance. When granular guidelines were proposed to restrict characteristics allowed in commercial formulation, the formulation chemists became involved in that subcommittee. They found E35.22 was a forum they could meet and contribute to the effort working with the engineers who founded the subcommittee. Within four years, the chemists and their suppliers became the majority, far outnumbering the engineers. E35 has benefited greatly from that development.
