Standards Development

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.

Standards Development Lifecycle

ACMA facilitates a standards development lifecycle that is open, fair, and collaborative that engages directly and materially interested stakeholders within the composites industry.


The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) coordinates standards, conformity assessment, and related activities in the United States of America. ANSI is a private, not-for-profit organization and is not a government agency, standards developer or certifier. ANSI accredits standards developers and conformity assessment bodies.

Announcements of ACMA’s standard development activities are published within the ANSI Standards Action publication.
