Tactics to Find What Standards are Involved With a Given Product

  • Think about who has a vested interest in the safety of the product you are concerned about.
  • Go to the organizational website. Most websites have a search function that will help you discover what standards exist.
  • Look at the packaging for compliance statements: i.e. "Conforms to ASTM D-4236."
  • Search keywords in ASTM under the generic term for the item to see what standards apply to it.
  • If you have a specific number or title of a standard, check the ANSI standards search or the IHS Markit Standards Store to get more information about a given standard.
