Committee Member Training Resources
New Member Training and Orientation Resources
To aid members in better understanding how ASME standards development activities are conducted and how to actively participate on a committee, several training tools and guidance documents have been developed. Members and Staff are encouraged to review these modules and documents.
Policies, Procedures and Guidelines
ASME’s standards development activities are conducted according to procedures accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) in addition to ASME Constitution and Bylaws and Society Policies. We’ve also created codes and standards guidelines and policy documents to aid in preparing committee agendas, minutes, manuscripts, and technical revisions.
