    Abstract

    ASTM has been around for 120 years providing solutions using the expertise of industry stakeholders.  148 Technical committees are comprised of 30,000 industry stakeholders, representing industry, government and academia, from 175 countries around the world.   ASTM provides open access and transparency in the development of consensus standards that ensure the quality of products and services, while providing protection for the consumer and the environment.  In April 2017, the ASTM International Board of Directors approved Committee D37 on Cannabis, in response to a marketplace request.  Currently, Committee D37 has 350 members from 8 countries working in 8 technical subcommittees, to develop standards that will hopefully raise the bar for the cannabis industry.
