ASTM Committee E05 on Fire Standards was formed in 1904. E05 meets twice a year, in June and December, with approximately 90 members attending four days of technical meetings. Workshops on fire research are generally part of each meeting schedule and formal symposia are held on a regular basis. The Committee currently has 631 members and it currently has jurisdiction of 80 standards published in the Annual Book of ASTM Standards, Volume 04.07. The committee has nine technical subcommittees that maintain these standards, which together with fire-related standards developed by other ASTM committees, are an essential part of fire safety.
