Bound Print Volume
This format provides immediate online access to the active (most current) standards in a Volume. Through a user name and password, you gain instant access to the latest standards in your chosen volumes directly from ASTM's network. These online subscriptions are updated weekly with new and revised standards. You must renew your subscription annually to maintain access to your Volume.
The Online Basic version includes Active standards only. An active standard is the current, official version of an ASTM standard.
Online Plus includes all active standards, plus redline, historical and withdrawn standards. You get access to everything.
Redlines are a quick and easy way to compare all of the changes between the active standard and the previous version. With a redline you'll immediately see additions, deletions, and other changes between the two standards.
A historical standard is a version of an ASTM standard that has been superseded by a more current version. ASTM makes historical standards available for information purposes. For example, an ASTM standard may have a designation and year date of F645-95. If this standard has been superseded by a new version (i.e. F645-99), the previous version, F645-95, is considered historical.
A withdrawn standard is an ASTM standard that has been discontinued by the ASTM Sponsoring Committee responsible for the standard. A standard may be withdrawn with or without replacement. ASTM makes withdrawn standards available for informational purposes.
