Established in 2005, the Standards Expert Program (SEP) is a key benefit offered to MOU signatories. Each year, through the SEP, ASTM offers to host three standards experts for a one-month period at ASTM headquarters. During their stay, the expert learns about ASTM International and its operations, ASTM technical committees and ASTM’s virtual tools. The experts also travel to a Committee Week and visit other standards-related public and private organizations located in Washington, D.C. Each expert is asked to identify a key sector with which we can conduct a virtual meeting with the expert’s participation from headquarters and they are asked to provide staff with a presentation on the structure and function of their respective national standards body.
