Tell your standards success story!

ASTM International is seeking success stories that demonstrate the benefits of standardization for the 2009 ASTM International Advantage Award. The goal of the award is to gather real-life examples that support the positive value of ASTM standards.

While it is universally accepted that standards make our world safer, aid in the flow of commerce, and are the companions to regulation, the 2009 ASTM International Advantage Award challenges you to present quantitative data that support the benefits of ASTM International standards.

If you can clearly show the positive impact of an ASTM standard or group of ASTM standards, then consider competing for the $15,000 first prize in the 2009 ASTM International Advantage Award.

Your case study of positive outcomes will add to the body of knowledge of standards and their application.

All submissions must be received with an official entry form by June 1, 2009. Submit papers via email to Maryann Gorman, ASTM International, mgorman@astm.org.
