You’ve already submitted a review for this item. Significance and Use This specification provides the basic minimum criteria for use in evaluating the qualifications of testing or inspection agencies, or both, for road and paving materials. There may be little practical value in that kind of requirement, and requiring a standard that specifies a periodic performance evaluation may be more effective at ensuring technical proficiency.
Biological Microscope We are holding or combination Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. The gold standard for laboratory accreditation in the construction industry. While it is true that some of the standards permit one person to fulfill multiple positional requirements, the AASHTO Accreditation Program AAP only approves this situation when the person is actually acting in the operational capacities specified in the standards.
It is best to investigate external certification programs to ensure that they fulfill the requirements of the standards.

This causes them to sort through a maze of possible certification programs to find the ones that will satisfy all of the different requirements. The laboratory is able to get those standards back on their directory listing after they submit evidence of conformance.
The laboratory should carefully consider the positions identified in the standards, and who fulfills those roles on a day-to-day basis before submitting the Criteria Compliance Document, organizational chart, and certifications for review. These standards change often, and the laboratories must react to the changes if they wish to maintain accreditation for those standards. With great excitement, we are happy to issue our first News Letter of You typed the code incorrectly.
We have 90 years of splendid history and during all of those years d6366 have continually supplied advanced technology measurement equipment across the world. Considerations for laboratories Laboratory personnel should ask themselves a few questions before submitting documentation for review: Sometimes we have found that laboratories accredited for one of the ASTM standards that require certifications do not actually conform to the requirements. We are not able to simplify the requirements, but we can help the laboratories to better understand them.

Technician Certification Requirements in ASTM Standards
A consistent evaluation ensures that all AASHTO-accredited laboratories throughout the country are treated fairly and that our program can better meet the needs of the agencies that specify accreditation for these standards. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard. For some, though, it has been a challenge – mainly because the laboratories are not familiar with the requirements of the standards and how we evaluate conformance to them.
Criteria are provided for evaluating the capability of an agency to properly perform designated tests on road and paving materials, and for establishing guidelines pertaining to an agency’s organization, personnel, facilities, and quality system. It is very important to our program that we meet the needs of the agencies that require our accreditation.
It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. The criteria may be supplemented by more specific criteria and requirements.
Considerations for specifying agencies It seems like the number of agencies that specify the ASTM quality system standards is on the rise, and the AASHTO Accreditation Program will continue to do its best to support their quality objectives. Regardless of which quality system an agency chooses to require, the best way for them to truly get what they want out of these standards is to get involved with the standards development process.
