ASTM International reports that its standards development meetings, planned to take place in Boston and Prague in April, have been canceled due to the spread of Covid-19.

The decision was based on several factors, including recommendations from the World Health Organization (WHO) and input from ASTM International members, the organization said.

ASTM said that it is still assessing the status of ASTM’s future standards development meetings in May and June 2020.
