ASTM President Recognizes ANSI Centennial with Video Tribute


In honor of the American National Standards Institute's (ANSI’s) 100th anniversary this year, ASTM International has contributed a video highlighting ANSI's influence and contributions on behalf of the U.S. standardization system. Posted among a growing collection of recognitions on ANSI’s centennial webpage,, the tribute features ASTM International president and ANSI Board of Directors member Katharine Morgan discussing ANSI’s lasting impact on the standards community and society.

In 1918, ASTM (previously the American Society for Testing and Materials) was one of five non-government organizations that helped launch the American Engineering Standards Committee (AESC)—which would eventually become ANSI. ASTM International is an ANSI member and audited designator of American National Standards.

"ANSI has done so much to strengthen ties between the public and private sectors and to advance the multiple paths approach to international standardization," says Ms. Morgan. "ANSI is committed to openness, transparency, and to other crucial values that we all share."
