Why You Should Attend The need for quality assurance, along with the implementation of ISO 9000 in industry and ISO 17025 for testing laboratories, has heightened the need for standardized, consistent measurements. All test methods and measurement procedures require an assessment of its precision. This course will examine actual interlaboratory studies and the statistical issues associated with the development and use of standards which result in measurements.

About ASTM and Sponsoring Committee Established in 1898, ASTM is one of the world's largest voluntary standards development organizations. ASTM standards have grown to be among the world's most widely used and accepted documents. The 77-volume Annual Book of ASTM Standards (now available in print, on CD ROM, & online) contain 12,000 standards written by 32,000 members on our 130 technical committees. These standards are widely used throughout the world as the basis of purchasing and other contracts, codes, laws and regulations. The standards referenced in this course were developed by Committee E-11 on Quality and Statistics.
