Regs Corner

Committee Meetings

A committee’s bylaws include “Rules for the conduct of business and meetings, rules pertaining to proxies, and the requirements for a quorum.” That’s how the Regulations Governing ASTM Technical Committees puts it. 

The Regs, under Section 9, Rules for Conduct of Business, further indicates that committee and subcommittee meetings are open to visitors “when technical matters relating to the development of standards are to be discussed.” Also, electronic recording of ASTM meetings is prohibited.

Executive subcommittee meetings may be closed when nontechnical matters are being discussed.
