STANDARDS FOR PUBLIC REVIEW

AWS was approved as an accredited standards-preparing organization by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) in 1979. AWS rules, as approved by ANSI, require that all standards be open to public review for comment during the approval process. This column also advises of ANSI approval of documents. The standards listed below are under public review. A draft copy may be obtained through the AWS staff contact for the respective standard. Send correspondence to AWS, Technical Services Division, 8669 NW 36 Street, #130, Miami, FL 33166; telephone (800/305) 443-9353.
