OECD Releases Case Study on ASTM International's Global Standards


The Organisation of Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) recently released a report on ASTM International, publishing the findings of a case study that highlights ASTM’s process for developing standards that are relevant in today’s global economy and used by industry and governments worldwide to support technologies and sectors such as additive manufacturing, sustainable aviation fuels, unmanned aviation systems, circular construction, and others.

The OECD report is part of a series that provides overviews of the structure, governance, instruments, and processes of international organizations in support of international rule-making and standard-setting.

“The Case of ASTM International” finds that ASTM’s membership structure, open participation, and inclusive and representative decision-making process produce globally relevant standards for markets including automation, nanotechnology, 3D printing, and sustainable construction. Also highlighted in the report is the increasing importance of global collaboration in international standards.
