Program Houses Registry of Product Conformity to Standard Test Methods

W. CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa., - Responding to increasing requests from suppliers and their customers, ASTM International has developed a new program - Supplier's Declaration of Conformity. Launched in April 2012, this latest offering is an outgrowth of ASTM's certification programs.

Supplier's Declaration of Conformity provides manufacturers, purchasers and consumers with a useful and needed tool. A major benefit to suppliers will be the evidence that they can offer their customers regarding conforming to ASTM test methods. Product test results will be registered with ASTM, and supporting documentation will show the supplier's registration and acceptance by an independent third party.

Sponsored and administered by ASTM International, the new program is available to any supplier, manufacturer, distributor or private brand owner. In a typical scenario, suppliers having products tested to ASTM test methods will register specific information regarding their products, accredited labs and the ASTM test methods. Once accepted by ASTM, the supplier can provide the documentation or request ASTM to provide documentation to their customers.

"Quality, safety and precision are the hallmarks of ASTM test methods. Documentation supporting conformance to ASTM test methods will reinforce a supplier's credibility as well as enhance regulatory, marketing and sales efforts," explains Ken Pearson, senior vice president, Operations, at ASTM International.

Supplier's Declaration of Conformity conforms to the requirements of ISO/IEC 17050-1 and 17050-2 Conformity Assessment-Supplier's Declaration of Conformity. The new ASTM program applies to ASTM test methods; it does not apply to ASTM specifications.

For further information on the new ASTM Supplier's Declaration of Conformity Program, contact Timothy Brooke, vice president, Certification, Training and Proficiency Testing, ASTM International (phone: 610-832-9729; tbrooke@astm.org), or visit the Supplier's Declaration of Conformity webpage at www.astm.org/suppliers.

ASTM International is one of the largest international standards development and delivery systems in the world. ASTM International meets the World Trade Organization (WTO) principles for the development of international standards: coherence, consensus, development dimension, effectiveness, impartiality, openness, relevance and transparency. ASTM standards are accepted and used in research and development, product testing, quality systems and commercial transactions.
