IEC, ISO and the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM International) are holding a joint meeting in Denver next week to discuss the work of their various technical committees and highlight the areas of collaboration.
Members of IEC TC 111 (working group 3), who prepare specifications on test methods for certain chemical substances found in electrical and electronic products, will be presenting their most recent work in collaboration with ISO/TC 61 on plastics.
An ASTM workshop will also take place, during which the standardization activities of each organization will be discussed, notably ASTM Committee F40 on declarable substances in materials. Updates concerning various regulatory frameworks on global substance restrictions around the world will also be given.
