Established in 2005, the Standards Expert Program (SEP) is a key benefit offered to MOU signatories. Each year, through the SEP, ASTM offers to host standards experts at ASTM headquarters. During their stay, the expert learns about ASTM International and its operations, ASTM technical committees and ASTM’s virtual tools. The experts also travel to a Committee Week and visit other standards-related public and private organizations located in Washington, D.C. Each expert is asked to identify a key sector with which we can conduct a virtual meeting with the expert’s participation from headquarters and they are asked to provide staff with a presentation on the structure and function of their respective national standards body.
