ASTM International Achieves Accreditation by the Standards Council of Canada (SCC)



Published February 5, 2013
ASTM International announced today that it has been accredited by the Standards Council of Canada (SCC).  With 1,400 members in Canada and 180 ASTM standards referenced in Canadian federal legislation, SCC accreditation further strengthens ASTM’s presence in Canada.

Located in Ottawa, Ontario, SCC carries out a variety of functions to ensure the effective and coordinated operation of standardization in Canada. Accreditation signifies that ASTM meets all of the requirements for consensus standards development set by SCC. These requirements mirror the principles of the World Trade Organization: transparency, openness, consensus and relevance. SCC’s audit was conducted on November 6-8, 2012, at ASTM headquarters.

“ASTM International already enjoys a significant footprint in Canada with regard to ASTM membership, its leadership, meetings and the application of ASTM standards, including ASTM standards referenced in Canadian federal regulations,” said James A. Thomas, ASTM president. “This distinction serves to further confirm the international value of ASTM’s robust process of consensus standards development. By achieving SCC accreditation, Canadian industry and government can utilize the ASTM process with even greater confidence.”
