ASTM has published its annual report, covering its development of standards in industries such as commercial spaceflight, drones, exo technologies and additive manufacturing (AM). According to the organization, the report also details ASTM’s efforts to support global health by offering no-cost access to standards used in the production and testing of personal protective equipment (PPE).

‘We are proud to have led the charge in offering global access to vital PPE standards to help keep people safe,’ said Katharine Morgan, ASTM president. ‘Those efforts, coupled with the creation of our PPE forum, will continue to work towards safe, quality, and innovative personal protective equipment.’

Plans are for ASTM to return to face-to-face committee meetings beginning in October 2021.
