ASTM members number more than 30,000 of the world’s top technical experts and business professionals representing 135 countries. ASTM information is used in many different industries, in almost every country and includes most of the world’s largest corporations. ASTM information is widely used across the GCC by all ‘energy’ companies. Beyond its leadership in the area of standards development, ASTM offers technical training programs for industry and government, as well as proficiency testing, inter-laboratory crosscheck programs and newly initiated certification programs, which support manufacturers, users, researchers and laboratories worldwide. ASTM has also recently formed a global alliance with API to evolve the way in which we provide our customers with access to our standards. We have developed ‘Compass’ which enables instant online access to more dynamic content, functionality and workflow productivity tools and as a result Compass is now the optimum way to access ASTM & API standards.
