Subcommittee Also Revising Standard for Skier Goggles W. CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa., 10 June 2009-Subcommittee F08.57 on Eye Safety for Sports is continuing its work to develop and maintain eyewear standards for a variety of sports. The subcommittee, part of ASTM International Committee F08 on Sports Equipment and Facilities, is currently at work on developing a new standard for motorcycle/moped/snowmobile goggles and revising an existing standard for skier goggles. According to Charley French, an F08.57 member and an engineer with Scott USA, there currently are no goggle standards for motorcycles, mopeds and snowmobiles. WK23632, Specification for Goggle- and Spectacle-Type Eye Protectors for Selected Motor Sports, will be used by off-road motorcycle/all-terrain vehicle and snowmobile manufacturers, distributors, dealers and consumers. In addition to developing WK23632, Subcommittee F08.57 is in the process of extensively revising standard F659, Specification for Skier Goggles and Faceshields, which was originally published before the formation of Subcommittee F08.57. "As newer eyewear standards have been written by the subcommittee, it became apparent that in order to update F659, it would be easier and cleaner to rewrite it," notes French. The standard is used by ski/snowboard goggle manufacturers and consumers. "Both the proposed WK23632 and the revised F659 are being developed around leading products in their fields with safety and durability as the goal," says French. All interested parties are encouraged to participate in the standards developing activities of Subcommittee F08.57. For technical Information, contact Charley French, Scott USA, Sun Valley, Idaho (phone: 208-622-1047; charley@scottusa.com). ASTM Committee F08 meets Nov. 11-13 during November committee week in Atlanta, Ga. ASTM International welcomes and encourages participation in the development of its standards.
