C27 subcommittees will also continue work on proposed standards for retaining wall modular block units, precast concrete burial vaults and grave liners, and concrete box sections. Formed in 1972, Committee C27 maintains 33 standards covering utility structures; barriers, poles and cast stone; water and wastewater structures and tanks; and glass fiber reinforced concrete. C27’s scope excludes concrete pipe, which falls under ASTM Committee C13 on Concrete Pipe.
