ASTM Standards-only PLUS - includes both current/active versions of standards as well as historical and redlined versions of standards. Today, over 12,000 ASTM standards are used around the world to improve product quality, enhance health and safety, strengthen market access and trade, and build consumer confidence
Until 2018-29, ASTM offered BASIC and PLUS options of their Standards. With the 2018-2019 renewal, ASTM announced that they will no longer support the BASIC option. The PLUS option provides access to historical versions dating back approximately 15 to 20 years, plus redlined version comparisons between any 2 versions.
There were previously 4 options. These have been condensed down to two options by removing the BASIC option:
- ASTM Standards-only PLUS - includes both current/active versions of standards as well as historical and redlined versions of standards.
- ASTM Complete SEDL (Standards and Engineering Digital Library) PLUS - includes both current/active versions of standards as well as historical and redlined versions of standards, manuals/monographs, STPs, Data Series and 9 journals (Smart and Sustainable Manufacturing Systems (SSMS) was added in 2017).
