The ASME is the leading international developer of codes and standards that are associated with the art, science, and practice of mechanical engineering. Globally recognized, the ASME has been a trust source of consensus standards since 1884. More than 5,500 volunteer engineers, scientists, government officials, and various other institutions contribute their technical expertise to develop voluntary standards that enhance public safety, health, quality of life, and to facilitate innovation, trade, and competitiveness.
ASME’s standards portfolio included over 500 standards and associated products and is accepting for us in more than 100 countries around the world. The products cover a wide range of topics that include; pressure technology, nuclear plants, elevators / escalators, construction, engineering design, standardization, and performance testing.
As new technologies and processes emerge, such as additive manufacturing, model-based enterprise, robotics, energy production and storage, mobile unmanned systems and many others, the ASME provides guidance.
