In this issue

The formation of two new technical committees within ASTM International will prove very helpful to the stakeholders in each of these areas. New Committee F10 will standardize livestock, meat, and poultry evaluation systems, making it easier for everyone from producer to consumer to be sure that the facts and figures that accompany meat and poultry products are accurate. The members of new Committee F35 will work to ensure that there is better compatibility between the components of machine tools—from vision panels to electric wiring—and the lubricants used in them. //
