1 1 Member Orientation June 2012 San Francisco, CA ASTM International Committee D02 on Petroleum Products and Lubricants

2 2 Presentation Provide an overview of ASTM International Introduce ASTMs standardization concepts Introduce Committee D02 Membership Overview of standards development process Increase your awareness of and participation in D02 Answer questions

3 3 About ASTM International Organized in 1898 Independent, private sector, not-for-profit Provides a global forum for the development of voluntary, consensus standards and promotion of related knowledge

4 4 About ASTM International Headquarters near Philadelphia Staff of approx. 170 Offices in: Washington, DC Mexico City, Mexico Beijing, China (China Standards and Conformity Assessment office)

5 5 ASTMs Product Include Over 12,000 standards published annually Related publications Related training and laboratory cross-check testing programs

6 6 ASTM Certification Programs ASTM Board authorized management to develop capability to offer certification services Product as well as Personnel Certification Industry supported programs ASTM does not permit its trademark to be used in manner that suggest its has approved any product, equipment or service other than Certification Program

7 7 ASTM Standards are International ASTM standards are used around the world and developed by technical experts from around the world Argentina 50 countries Zambia

8 8 ASTM Standards are International ASTM complies with the principles identified in the World Trade Organizations, Technical Barriers to Trade Agreement, document G/TBT/1/REV 8 Section IX. Transparency Relevance Openness Coherency Impartiality and consensus Consideration of the concerns of developing countries

9 138 Technical Committees Serve Multiple Sectors A. Ferrous Metals B. Non Ferrous Metals C. Concrete, Ceramics D. Miscellaneous Materials – Water, Textiles, Plastics, Air Quality, D02 Petroleum and Lubricants, etc. E. Miscellaneous Subjects – Fire Standards, Forensics, Healthcare, etc. F. Materials for Specific Applications – Consumer Products, Medical Devices, Tires, etc. G. Corrosion of Materials

10 10 The ASTM Structure 30,000+ Members 128 countries represented 90 industry sectors represented 2,200+ Subcommittees Thousands of task groups

11 Organization ASTM Board of Directors Board Committees Committee on Technical Committee Operations Regulations Committee on Standards Form & Style, Due Process Committee on Publications ASTM Technical Committees (i.e., D02 ) Subcommittees (i.e.: D02.A0 on Motor Gasoline) Sections / Task Groups

12 12 ASTM Standardization Concepts

13 13 ASTM Standardization Concept A decentralized system ASTMs technical committees make the decisions ASTM provides an open forum and an administrative framework

14 14 ASTM Standardization Concept The system is open Fair - Anyone may speak and participate (Voting members must participate) Methodical Rigorous process with checks and balances

15 15 ASTM Standardization Concept Partnership of the public and private sector Marketplace orientation Reflects changes in technology ASTMs standards are voluntary Standards are only mandatory when cited in regulation or called out in a contract

16 16 What is a Standard? As used in ASTM, a document developed and established within the consensus principles of the organization and which meets the requirements of ASTM procedures and regulations. Full consensus standards developed with participation of all parties who have a stake in the standards development and/or use.

17 Standards ASTM uses term standard as adjective to describe following types of standards: Specifications Test Methods Practices Guides Classifications Terminology

18 18 Introduction to ASTM Committee D02 on Petroleum Products and Lubricants

41 Ballot Foundation All ballots are electronic – posted to Committee D02 Members Only webpage Must allow a minimum of 30 days for response All negative votes require a written explanation to be considered Substantive changes made in response to comments require reballoting (Scopes and Precision sensitive to change)

42 ASTM Balloting Process SECTION / TASK GROUP SUBCOMMITTEE 60% Return 2/3 Approval SOCIETY & MAIN COMMITTEE D02 60% Return 90% Approval COMMITTEE ON STANDARDS The ASTM standards development process is driven from the bottom up, by the technical experts. In the balloting process extensive consideration is given to negative votes. Standards are not approved until all negatives are resolved.

43 Ballot Response Affirmative Affirmative with comment Negative Must have written reason! Preferably not editorially based Abstention Abstention with comment

44 Resolving Negatives Withdrawn by voter Withdrawn with Editorial change – D02 Editor approval required Not related (2/3 hand count required – voting members). Must become a new business item Not Persuasive (2/3 hand count required) SC must supply reasoning for motion in ajudication documentation

45 Appeal of Not Persuasive Negative voter options on Main Committee Ballots If not persuasive, voter may request a confirming ballot on his/her Main Committee negative vote Must be within 30 day of receiving notification of vote Electronic ballot conducted to sponsoring subcommittee No comments on ballot (yes, no, or abstain vote) Appeal to COS Response based on basis of Due Process, not technical

46 Not Persuasive Negatives Negatives determined Not Persuasive on Subcommittee Ballots attached to ballot item for rest of approval process, includes Copy of negative Copy of subcommittee response Vote count totals Committee on Standards (COS) Reviews all Not Persuasive ballot actions on Main Committee/Society Ballots for due process. No technical issues considered

47 Ballot Comments All comments must be considered Options Editorial changes Cannot be substantive. If in doubt consult with editorial staff New work item Not related to ballot item

48 Ballot Not Required Editorial changes Correct typographical errors Correct editorial style Change non-technical information Reduce amgibuity

49 Ballot Required Substantive Specification limits Changes to Procedure Equipment Precision statement Scope Significance & Use Any other significant change Summary of Change Section addition Contents change automatically when changes are balloted
