ASTM International

American Society for Testing and Materials, ASTM

ASTM International (2001) formerly known as American Society for Testing and Materials founded in 1898. ASTM represents quality for materials to be used in products which are described in ASME. ASTM International is one of the largest voluntary standards developing organizations in the world. ASTM International is a not-for-profit organization that provides a forum for the development and publication of voluntary standards for materials, products, systems, and services. More than 12,000 standards are used globally and the more than 30,000 members belonging to one or more committees, representing consumers, users, producers and government from over 140 countries, covering a subject area such as steel, petroleum, medical devices, property management, consumer products, and many more.

ASTM International’s member develop technical documents grounding manufacturing, management, procurement, codes, and regulations. The manifestation of this standard means the material was subjected to a mechanical test determining its yield strength, tensile strength, Brinell hardness and elongation. ASTM articulate that international standardization can be more effective through the support of sector-driven standards and observance of basic principles of standards development. For a full publication of these standards yearly, there is the Annual Book of ASTM Standards for industries like geothermal energy, medicine, environment and electrical and cover items like plastics, adhesives, textiles and more.

ASME Standards

American Society of Mechanical Engineers, ASME

ASME is one of the oldest standards-developing organizations in America. ASME is an American Organizational set up, to guide, monitor and work on betterment of mechanical engineering and relevant multi-disciplinary engineering through codes and standards. ASME standards represents the dimensions and tolerances with respect to each material class. ASME developed approximately 600 codes and standards covering many technical areas, such as fasteners, plumbing fixtures, elevators, pipelines, and power plant systems and components.

Many ASME standards are cited by government agencies as tools to meet their regulatory objectives. ASME’s standards are used in more than 100 countries and have been translated into numerous languages. Founded as an engineering society focused on mechanical engineering in North America, ASME is today multidisciplinary and global. ASME has over 140,000 members in 158 countries worldwide.
