In a previous post, I told you about the upcoming ASME Y14 Committee meeting and invited you to attend. Here’s a little more information about the standard review process.

There is a draft of the new standard out for public review. The public can comment on it until the October 21st deadline. Your input is valuable.

If you can’t attend the meeting, you can still comment. Here’s a quote from the ASME site:

Public comments may be submitted on proposed draft new ASME Standards, and on proposals to revise, reaffirm or withdraw approval of existing ASME Standards.

Comments should be addressed to [] with a copy to the Board of Standards Review, American National Standards Institute, 25 West 43rd Street, New York, NY 10036. Fax: 212-840-2298; e-mail:

The public review proposal is available in hard copy for $85 from:
