ASTM International goes virtual for upcoming standards meetings

ASTM International announced that all previously scheduled in-person May and June standards development meetings—including D02 and independent meetings—have been transitioned to all virtual. Last month, ASTM International announced that all April in-person meetings would be transitioned to virtual.

According to ASTM this was after continued review of information and recommendations from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO), and other governmental bodies as well as input from ASTM International members whose organizations are increasingly concerned with travel. Specific information on the projected city restrictions in Toronto, Ontario, CA, and other cities, with input from the hotels played a role in the decision too.

ASTM International staff will be contacting committee leaders to plan for virtual meetings or other alternatives for conducting committee business.

Last year, ASTM International also announced they are providing no-cost public access to a suite of more than two dozen standards used in the production and testing of personal protective equipment to combat the coronavirus public health emergency.
