Public Review

ASAM offers its members the opportunity to review and comment on draft versions of standards before release. This way we want to ensure that the standards contain no significant errors and are not missing important requirements.

Public Reviews

The purpose of a "Public Review" is to involve ASAM members who are not part of the project group but work in the respective domain, to obtain their review feedback and to increase the overall quality and acceptance of a standard prior to its release. If you are employee of an ASAM member company, you are eligible to take part in the review process. A login to ASAM's website is required.


The following standard(s) can be reviewed by all ASAM members:
