Understanding ASTM International Test Procedures for Cement and Concrete - Staying Up to Standard

Standards play a critical role in any reliable workflow. They help maintain quality, improve safety and, when followed properly, they can even provide a competitive advantage for organizations. Continuous training is required to keep all stakeholders and processes up-to-date.

ASTM International has been involved in providing laboratory inspections, proficiency testing programs, and test procedure development for the cement and concrete industry since 1929. These programs have been instrumental in ensuring the quality of laboratory testing as well as the quality of these materials used in construction all over the world.
