The American Society of Testing & Materials International (ASTM) is one of the largest voluntary standards development organizations in the world, a trusted source for technical standards for materials, products, systems, and services. Known for their high technical quality and market relevancy, ASTM standards have an important role in the information infrastructure that guides design, manufacturing and trade in the global economy. In 1993, ASTM published Standard Consumer Safety Performance Specifications for Playground Equipment for Public Use, designated as F1487-93. The standard was reprinted in 1995 and 1998 and revised in 2001, 2005, 2007 and 2011. The ASTM establishes minimum acceptable performance specifications for everything from access components to playground safety and surfacing.
