Standards & Codes (ASTM, Fire, IEEE, Industry & Technical)

What is a Standard?

"Simply stated, a standard is a document used repeatedly as a rule, guideline or definition. It is developed by a committee of experts who work within different areas of a particular industry – this ensures that the standard is well-rounded."

[From: The American Welding Society Standards]
