Announced just last week, ASTM International has canceled all in-person committee meetings and independent committee meetings scheduled throughout the month of April.

The decision comes as a result of growing health and safety concerns amidst the coronavirus pandemic.

Standards Development Canceled

Among the meetings canceled were ASTM’s standards development meetings, which were slated to take place in Boston from March 29 - April 3, and in Prague from April 27-30.

Announced just last week, ASTM International has canceled all in-person committee meetings and independent committee meetings scheduled throughout the month of April.

The decision was reached due to several factors, some including:

  • Continued review of information and recommendations from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the World Health Organization and other governmental bodies;
  • Input from ASTM International members whose organizations are increasingly concerned with travel; and
  • Watching the expanding trajectory of the coronavirus.

Moving forward, ASTM reports that it will be relying on committee leaders to plan alternatives for conducting committee business and hopes to host future standards development meetings in May (May 10-15) and June (June 28 - July 3).

For the most up-to-date information regarding the meetings, ASTM advises members visit www.astm.org or www.astm.org/MEETINGS/, in addition to following its collection of social platforms.
