ASTM WK31065

    Withdrawal of F568M - 07 Standard Specification for Carbon and Alloy Steel Externally Threaded Metric Fasteners

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Developed by Subcommittee: F16.02 | Committee F16 | Contact Staff Manager


    This standard is being balloted for withdrawal with no replacement because: 1. ISO 898-1 is the preeminent World standard for metric externally threaded fasteners. There is little point in having a parallel ASTM document. 2. The existing F568M document is referenced in no other ASTM standards. 3. The existing F568M document is not known to be in general or particular use in the USA. 4. Use of F568M is likely to lead to confusion.
