W. CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa., August 19, 2009-The A01 Founding Committee Award has been presented to Frank M. Christensen of Qualicum Beach, British Columbia, Canada, for distinguished service to ASTM International Committee A01 on Steel, Stainless Steel and Related Alloys in the development of international consensus standards for the steel industry.

The Founding Committee Award is granted solely on merit. The title of the award recognizes A01 as the committee at ASTM's foundation and the role the blacksmiths and foundries of the late 1800's and early 1900's played in helping to establish A01 and the Society as we know it today.

A member of ASTM International and Committee A01 since 1987, Christensen has participated on various A01 subcommittees and has chaired numerous task groups. He also served as chair of Subcommittee A01.92 on Terminology for many years. In 1998, the committee presented him with the ASTM Award of Merit and accompanying title of fellow.

Christensen worked in increasing positions of responsibility relating to product metallurgy and quality assurance at Stelco Inc., now U.S. Steel Canada, for more than 30 years. In 1993, he retired from Stelco and began his consulting firm, F.M. Christensen Metallurgical Consulting Inc.

A graduate of McMaster University, Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, where he earned a bachelor's degree in metallurgical engineering, Christensen is a former member of the American Petroleum Institute (API), the Canadian Standards Association (CSA) and the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). He was presented with an Award of Merit from CSA in 1994, and in 2000 he received the John Jenkins Award, CSA's most prestigious honor.

Established in 1898, 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 around the globe.
