Committee F08 on Sports Equipment and Facilities was organized in 1969. F08 meets twice a year, in May and November, with approximately 100 members attending various subcommittee meetings over a four-day period. The Committee has a membership of 600 who participate on one or more of its 25 technical subcommittees. F08 has developed 125 standards that are published in the Annual Book of ASTM Standards, Volume 15.07. Information on subcommittee structure and F08's portfolio of approved standards and Work Items under construction are available from the List of Subcommittees, Standards and Work Items below. F08's focus continues to be the development and review of standards for sports equipment, surfaces, and facilities to reduce inherent risk of injuries and promote knowledge as it relates to these standards.
