ASTM International Cancels April Standards Meetings in Boston, Prague

In light of COVID-19 (coronavirus) and growing safety concerns for members and staff, ASTM International announced today that previously scheduled April standards development meetings in Boston (March 29-April 3) and Prague (April 27-30) have been canceled.

The decision was based on several factors, including, but not limited to:

  • Continued review of information and recommendations from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO), and other governmental bodies,
  • Input from ASTM International members whose organizations are increasingly concerned with travel, and
  • Watching the expanding trajectory of the coronavirus.

ASTM International staff will be contacting committee leaders to plan alternatives for conducting committee business.

Looking forward, ASTM International will rely on these and other relevant criteria and input points to assess the status of ASTM’s future standards development meetings in May (May 10-15) and June (June 28-July 3).
