Possibly to reflect its multinational membership, which boasts 30,000 technical workers from more than 100 countries, voluntary standards development organization ASTM, West Conshohocken, Pa., has changed its name to ASTM International. Along with the name change, the organization has changed its logo and added the tag line “Standards Worldwide."

“ASTM standards play a vital role in international trade,” said Charles Ludolph, former deputy assistant secretary for Europe in the U.S. Department of Commerce. “As a result, ASTM facilitates the development of standards that can be used on a worldwide basis and play a vital role in aiding global trade.”
