Abu Dhabi Chamber signs deal with ASTM International
"This program has been crucial in supporting the global standards community, starting with our first signatory, Colombia, to Gulf nations including the UAE, to Montserrat, our 100th," Thomas said. "These signings reflect ASTM's broad and deep commitment to World Trade Organization principles such as openness, transparency, and the development dimension."
ASTM MoU partners receive free participation in ASTM technical committees and access to a collection of ASTM standards for the national standards body. Additionally, each partner will be able to access education about ASTM’s standards development process.
"It's clear that ASTM International standards are recognized worldwide for their high technical quality and market relevance," Deryck Omar, CEO of the CARICOM Regional Organization for Standards and Quality (CROSQ) in the Caribbean, said.
