ASTM International develops program

ASTM International has developed a new program, Supplier's Declaration of Conformity, an outgrowth of the organization's certification programs.

The program is available to any supplier, manufacturer, distributor or private brand owner. Now, suppliers who have products tested to ASTM International test methods will register specific information regarding their products, accredited labs and ASTM International test methods. Once accepted by ASTM International, suppliers can provide documentation or request ASTM to provide documentation to their customers.

Supplier's Declaration of Conformity conforms to the requirements of ISO/IEC 17050-1 and 17050-2, "Conformity Assessment-Supplier's Declaration of Conformity." The program applies to ASTM International test methods, not ASTM International specifications.
