ASTM International is an organization of inclusion - offering global access to fully transparent standards development, resulting in the highest technical excellence in standardization.
Initiated in 2001, ASTM International's MOU program promotes communication between ASTM International and national standards bodies worldwide, fostering awareness of the standardization systems of all parties involved. The program also facilitates the development of national standards that will aid each country's health, safety, environmental, and economic conditions. These agreements help avoid duplication of effort where possible and mutually promote the standards development activities of ASTM International and the national standards bodies participating in the program.
MOU's are designed to encourage, increase, and facilitate the participation of technical experts from around the world in the ASTM standards development process and broaden the global acceptance and use of ASTM International standards.
As a benefit of the MOU program, technical experts from any of the countries where MOUs have been signed can participate freely as full voting members in the ASTM standards development process. Please contact your national standards body for information on how to participate in ASTM International technical committees, or contact Kimberly Simms to join the ASTM technical committees of your choice.
