Global Technical Committees

Technical Committees develop and maintain ASTM standards.

They are grouped by designation according to related activities within a particular scope of work (ex: A01 on Steel, Stainless Steel, and Related Alloys). ASTM Committees are made up of over 32,000 volunteers from industry and include manufacturers and consumers, as well as other interest groups such as government or academia. Any interested individual can participate on a Technical Committee through ASTM membership.
