Biodiesel, Environmental, Transportation and Custom Collections Now Available
W. CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa., 1 July 2009 - Web portals from ASTM International make it easy to access the most relevant standards, government regulations and referenced documents in one single place.
ASTM Web portals, powered by Citation®, are interactive sites that include a specific collection of ASTM standards as well as other standards and documents chosen by the user. The portal allows multiple users to link between standards that are referenced, add notes or attachments for others to view, and make side-by-side comparisons of redlined standards. Currently, there are ASTM portals available for biodiesel, environmental due diligence and transportation, with more sector-specific portals under development.
ASTM Web portals are also available as custom collections, which provide instant online access to a collection of ASTM and other standards tailored to fit the needs of your company or organization. Whether your company specializes in steel, petroleum or medical devices, ASTM will take your controlled document list and deliver the information directly to the desktops of your end users. This option also allows organizations to upload their own internal documents and link them directly to ASTM International standards and/or other international regulations.
Take advantage of ASTM International's Web portals, and access the most current and applicable standards anytime, anywhere. For more information and to view a free demo, visit the ASTM Web site (www.astmproducts.com/portal.html).
