Now Approved: ACMA’s ANSI-Accredited Standards Developer (ASD) Scope

ACMA is pleased to announce the approval of its updated scope for our designation as an American National Standards Institute (ANSI)-Accredited Standards Developer (ASD). The updated scope identifies standards development activities that are essential for ACMA to initiate a new or revised American National Standards (ANS).    

The scope currently on file with ANSI: “The American Composites Manufacturers Association (ACMA) develops consensus standards and specifications, technical data sheets, industry best practices, and other guidance to support the growth of the Fiber-Reinforced Polymer (FRP) Composites Industry including FRP composites, composites made with fillers or natural materials, and their recyclates. ACMA’s activities are inclusive of various related FRP composite products, materials, and processes in conjunction with many diverse end-use market segments. In addition, ACMA’s activities are monitored and proposed at the request of interested parties and formulated by committees depending upon the need of the composites industry, resources, and collaboration efforts, to meet national and international requirements.”
