Committee F15 on Consumer Products

Staff Manager: Molly Lynyak

ASTM Committee F15 on Consumer Products was formed in 1973. The Committee, with a current membership of approximately 1000 participants on 63 technical subcommittees, has jurisdiction of over 100 standards, published in the Annual Book of ASTM Standards, Volume 15.11. Information on the subcommittee structure and F15's portfolio of approved standards and work items under development are available from the List of Subcommittees, Standards and Work Items below. The 63 subcommittees of F15 each serve a different product area (for example juvenile products, toys, playground equipment, candles, pool safety), and meet independently on different schedules depending upon level of activity and need. Developed by a unique mixture of representatives from industry, government, testing laboratories, retailers and the ultimate consumer, the F15 standards have and continue to play a preeminent role in reducing the number of injuries and death associated with the use and performance of consumer products based on identified hazards.
