ASTM International Standards

Unlock Excellence with ASTM International Standards

ASTM International, formerly the American Society for Testing and Materials, pioneers global standards for materials, products, and services. Established in 1902, ASTM has crafted 12,575 consensus standards, earning a reputation as a gold standard for quality.

Dive into a rich history that began with addressing rail breaks in the railroad industry. Evolving with time, ASTM officially became "ASTM International" in 2001, dedicated to setting "Standards Worldwide." In 2014, it embraced the tagline "Helping our World Work Better," embodying a commitment to global progress.

Membership in ASTM is open to all, fostering a diverse community of over 30,000 members from 140+ countries. Engage in shaping standards through its 140+ Technical Committees, where users, producers, consumers, and general interest participants collaborate.

ASTM's impact extends beyond borders. Though it has no enforcement role, its standards often become mandatory when referenced by contracts, corporations, or governments. Domestically, ASTM standards are prevalent in federal, state, and municipal regulations. Internationally, governments and businesses leverage ASTM's reliability and credibility.

Adopting ASTM standards is a strategic advantage in international trade.

Elevate your commitment to quality and safety by embracing ASTM International Standards. Join a global community dedicated to setting the gold standard for excellence and propel your products to new heights.
