ASTM International says that its October Committee Week meetings in Atlanta, GA, are now moving online.

This is due to concern about high Covid case counts and hospitalizations in the city, the organization said. Most participating committees also opted to meet virtually.

‘Decisions about upcoming independent meetings will be made by the respective executive subcommittees working with ASTM headquarters,’ a press release said. ‘Looking forward, ASTM International will rely on these and other relevant criteria and input points to assess the status of ASTM’s future standards development meetings and events, including the November and December committee weeks.’
