The American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) is now providing online access to its standards for materials, products, systems, and services.

According to the organization, the availability of its standards online will ease the work of professionals in many fields, helping to ensure quality. Users of ASTM standards include engineers, architects, researchers, consultants, and others.

With the Web-based system, users can purchase as many or as few standards as they need.

All of the more than 10,000 ASTM standards can be accessed using a Verity search engine.

For more information on the program, or to download some sample preselected standards, go to ASTM’s demonstration site at connect.
