Understanding ASTM International Test Procedures For Cement And Concrete - Staying Up To Standard

Standards play a critical role in any reliable workflow. They help maintain quality, improve safety and, when followed properly, they can even provide a competitive advantage for organizations. Continuous training is required to keep all stakeholders and processes up-to-date.

ASTM International has been involved in providing laboratory inspections, proficiency testing programs, and test procedure development for the cement and concrete industry since 1929. These programs have been instrumental in ensuring the quality of laboratory testing as well as the quality of these materials used in construction all over the world.

The Workshop (Third time In Kuwait):

Following from the success of 2015 and 2016, ASTM & Kuwait Cement Company (KCC) launches the third Cement Conference and Workshop in Kuwait, under the patronage of the Ministry of Public Works & Public Authority For Housing Welfare, and endorsed by the Public Authority of Industry & the Ministry of Defence.
