ASTM International has announced the launch of a new Internet-based system designed to initiate, develop and track draft standards and revisions before and during their balloting stage. The new Work Item Registration system, which is accessible from the Web site, is significant because it adds increased openness and transparency to ASTM's consensus standards development process. Now, any interested individual who wants to know whether ASTM is developing or revising a specific standard can access the information using the system. Users will be able to utilize the system to perform keyword searches about new standards and revisions; sign up for a free e-mail advisory service that provides notification of new work items in their area of interest; and view a committee's jurisdiction for the item in question. The new system also provides for improved access and involvement for ASTM members around the globe at every stage of the standards development process.
