4 GENERAL OPERATIONS MANUAL FOR ASTM PRODUCT CERTIFICATION PROGRAMS 1. Preface 1.1 Purpose The purpose of the General Operations Manual for ASTM Product Certification Programs is to provide procedures and policies that are common to all ASTM product certification programs. This manual is to be used in conjunction with the productspecific operations manual issued for each individual certification program. The productspecific operations manual contains additional procedures and policies relevant to the subject product. 1.2 Authority The General Operations Manual for ASTM Product Certification Programs is by the authority of the ASTM International charter, bylaws, and the ASTM Board of Directors. 1.3 Committee on Certification Programs The Committee on Certification Programs (CCP) is a standing committee of the Society and has the following responsibility as stated in its scope: CCP develops, maintains, interprets, and enforces the General Operations Manual for ASTM Certification Programs and acts upon recommended changes. 1.4 Maintenance of General Operations Manual This manual is prepared, maintained, and revised by CCP, subject to approval of the ASTM Board of Directors. 2. ASTM Product Certification Program 2.1 Introduction The ASTM Product Certification Program is sponsored and administered by ASTM International. All programs are developed to meet the requirements of ISO/IEC Guide 65 General Requirements for Bodies Operating Product Certification Systems. A product receiving certification through the program receives evaluation services (sampling, testing, and/or inspection) by a third-party laboratory, selected by ASTM, to determine the product s ability to meet or conform to one or more ASTM standards or a part of a standard. Any manufacturer, distributor, or private brand marketer of a product that falls within the scope of an ASTM certification program, whether domestic or international, is eligible to have its product(s) apply for ASTM certification. 2.2 Benefits The ASTM Product Certification Program is beneficial to manufacturers, the industry as a whole, and its consumers because it: Increases consumer confidence through independent testing that verifies that the product tested meets the parameters covered by the certification program, Provides a level playing field for manufacturers as competing products are tested to the same standard, Addresses regulatory pressure, and Includes listing in the ASTM Directory of Certified Products. 4

9 10.3 Updating Contacts It is the responsibility of the participant to maintain current contacts and notify ASTM immediately of any changes. 11. Certification Process 11.1 Information Concerning a Specific Certification Program ASTM will provide on its website the following information for each certification program: title; fee information; overview of the program; benefits of the program; requirements for program participation; application form; and key documents such as the General Operations Manual for ASTM Product Certification Programs, the product-specific operations manual, and the license agreement between ASTM and the participant Application An application for certification will be available on the ASTM website. All applicants shall complete and return an application committing them to comply with all requirements of the certification program and supply all information needed for completing the evaluation of the application. Failure to complete the application fully and accurately will void the applicant s participation in any ASTM program Application Evaluation The Department on Certification Programs will review applications to confirm that the ASTM Product Certification Program covers the requested certification and the applicant has provided all necessary information. ASTM will communicate with the participant to obtain missing information or clarify any difference of understanding Evaluation by Third-Party Laboratory A third-party laboratory will provide the evaluation services as documented in Section 11 and the product-specific operations manual. The report shall be provided to the ASTM Department on Certification Programs and the participant Decision on Granting Certification The ASTM Department on Certification Programs will review all information for completeness and promptly provide a decision on whether certification is granted or not granted. The notification shall identify any nonconformity that has to be discharged to comply with all of the certification requirements and the extent of further evaluation or testing required. If the applicant shows that remedial action has been taken to meet all the requirements within a specified time limit, the participant will only repeat the necessary parts of the certification process Certification Documentation Certified organizations will receive a letter signed by the Director of Certification Programs containing the following information: ASTM International with address identified as the certification body; Reference to the standard(s) or other relevant documents, including issue date, on which the certification is based; Scope of the certification, including validity conditions and limitations; 9

10 Effective date of certification and the date of expiration; Provide license agreement, product-specific operations manual, and ASTM certification mark and instructions; and Provide information concerning any ongoing evaluation, inspection, or testing requirements under the specific program Surveillance The surveillance process monitors the participant s compliance with relevant provisions of the certification program. If surveillance is required, it will be documented in the product-specific operations manual. The Director of Certification Programs is responsible for overseeing the surveillance process for each certification program Changes in the Certification Requirements When there are revisions to an applicable standard or the product-specific operations manual or both, ASTM will notify the program participants of such changes. ASTM with input from the TAC will decide on the precise form and the effective date of the changes Changes in a Participant s Product ASTM shall be immediately notified of any changes to the certified product and informed whether the participant believes such changes to their product will affect their certification. ASTM will determine whether any action is necessary or if the certification will be withdrawn. If recertification is required, it will be done in a timely manner. During recertification, the participant may no longer represent the product is certified or conforms to the relevant standard(s). The recertification requirements ensure that certified products continue to comply with the current certification requirements. The Director of Certification Programs is responsible for executing the recertification requirements for each certification program Reduction, Suspension, or Termination of Certification Whether through surveillance or changes affecting certification, it is determined by ASTM that there are nonconformities with certification requirements, a decision shall be made whether to continue (after re-inspection or recertification), reduce the scope, suspend, or terminate certification. If it is determined that certification should be suspended or terminated, the provisions in Section 14 shall be followed Records Retention The ASTM Records Retention Program available from ASTM will be used. It contains controls needed for identification, storage, protection, retrieval, retention time, disposition, and confidentiality. 12. Certification Fees 12.1 Explanation of Licensing Fee The licensing fee permits the participant to claim its product meets the requirements of the product-specific certification program and use the ASTM certification mark for its products. The licensing fee will be based on sales volume, units, or a flat fee depending on the specific program. 10

11 12.2 Explanation of Testing Fee Testing fees cover the costs associated with product testing for conformance to the appropriate standards. The testing fee will be a reflection of the number of required annual ASTM certification program tests. No test will be conducted without prior payment Other Testing Fees When applicable, participants will be assessed fees for second sample tests or replacement sample tests and any other fees required to test the participant s samples Exclusions The testing fee does not cover private tests or any tests that are requested by the participant that are beyond the requirement for ASTM certification testing or without ASTM s approval. The testing laboratory will invoice the participant directly for private tests or any test-related expenses or both that is requested by the participant Travel-Related Expenses For programs supporting laboratory oversight testing, the ASTM Certification Program testing fee only covers the costs associated with product testing. The testing laboratory will invoice the participant directly for any travel-related expenses incurred by the laboratory representative to conduct the witness testing Shipping Costs The manufacturer is responsible for sample shipping costs to and from the test laboratory unless the product-specific operations manual specifies which party (the participant, ASTM, or the laboratory) is responsible for payment of shipping costs for the test sample Schedule of Certification Fees The current schedule of certification charges for each specific program can be found on the ASTM website Termination from the Program Barring any outstanding payments owed to ASTM, a participant that voluntarily withdraws or is terminated from the certification program will receive a refund for paid testing fees that have not yet been applied towards product testing. Licensing fees will not be refunded. ASTM will not provide refunds to participants that have any outstanding certification fee invoices. 13. Proper Use of the ASTM Certification Mark and Claims to Certification 13.1 Displaying the ASTM Certification Mark on Products The ASTM certification mark shall be displayed on the product or product packaging or both The ASTM certification mark on a product means that a third-party laboratory has tested and evaluated representative samples of that product and determined that they meet ASTM requirements. Under some programs, products are periodically checked at the manufacturing facility to make sure they continue to meet ASTM requirements. The ASTM certification marks may be used only on or in connection with products certified by ASTM and under the terms of written agreement with ASTM Displaying ASTM Certification Marks in Advertisements, Product Packaging, Brochures, Fliers, Catalogs, News Releases, Websites, and Any Other Promotional 11

12 Communication The following guidelines and rules shall be used: Any references to ASTM in promotional materials shall be complete and accurate Make sure the ASTM product-specific certification mark appropriate for the product certified is used The ASTM certification mark should never appear more prominently in any advertising or packaging than the name of the company manufacturing or selling the product Products certified by other organizations, tested to ASTM standards, cannot bear any ASTM certification mark on them or in connection with their advertising unless authorized participants Do not use any ASTM product certification mark or reference ASTM product certification on company stationery, business cards, or signs. Use of these references on such materials could incorrectly imply more than a third-party safety or performance verification certification relationship between your company and ASTM or incorrectly imply that all products you manufacture have been certified by ASTM If you use an ASTM certification mark on your website, you shall ensure that visitors to your website are able to identify clearly which of your products have been certified by ASTM and which have not References to ASTM can be made only once you are authorized by ASTM to use the ASTM certification mark on your product No degree of acceptability, level of safety, or protection should be implied in promotional materials If ASTM product certification is withdrawn for any reason, all material that refers to this certification shall be immediately removed from distribution and further use of any ASTM certification marks shall be immediately discontinued If some products appearing in a website, brochure, advertisement, or catalog are entitled to bear the ASTM certification mark but others are not, you shall ensure the wording and placement of ASTM references make it clear which products are, in fact, certified by ASTM and which are not. Do not use the ASTM certification mark in general advertising or promotional material to suggest that noncertified products have, in fact, been certified The ASTM symbol and any words used to describe product certification shall be large enough to be clearly recognized and read by customers Do not try to reproduce the ASTM certification mark. Only use an authorized ASTM certification mark, which can be downloaded from the secure ASTM certification webpage. Make sure to use one color for all elements of the ASTM certification mark Do not use the ASTM certification mark on packaging for products that are not 12

13 ASTM certified ASTM may prohibit, in its sole discretion, or require modification of any proposed use by a participant of its certification mark on any promotional materials Obtaining Certification Marks The product-specific certification mark will be made available to participants upon notification of their certification approval by the ASTM Department on Certification Programs Issuing Corrections to Publications Whenever a product is no longer certified as a result of test failure, nonpayment of fees, other termination, or withdrawal from the program, the participant shall immediately cease the use of the ASTM certification mark and name in all advertisements, specifications, literature, software, websites, and so forth, including on the product itself. The participant shall notify ASTM within 21 days of the steps being taken Unauthorized Claims to ASTM Certification Unauthorized claims to ASTM certification should be reported to ASTM. Any unauthorized manufacturer claiming ASTM certification will be required immediately to cease use of the ASTM certification mark and remove claims of certification from all product literature. Failure to do so will result in legal action. 14. Comments and Complaints, Violations, Suspension, or Termination of Certification 14.1 Registering Comments and Complaints Comments and complaints regarding the operation of a product-specific ASTM certification program are to be submitted, in writing, to the ASTM Department on Certification Programs. This may include claims such as: nonimpartiality, discriminatory conditions, and violations of confidentiality. They will be noted in the certification program s quality system documentation, and the sender will receive a written or verbal response regarding ASTM s intended action Complaints to Participant The participant shall keep a record of all complaints made known to the participant related to the product s compliance with the requirements of the relevant standard and shall make these records available to ASTM when requested. The participant shall take action to correct any deficiencies found that affect compliance with the requirements for certification and document such actions Program Violation When a participant breaches a term(s) of the governing documents, they will receive a program violation letter via certified mail from the ASTM Director of Certification Programs. The violation letter will outline what program term(s) has been breached, request for provisions of corrective action, and instructions for appeal Corrective Action The participant shall respond within 30 calendar days, in writing, to the ASTM Director of Certification Programs detailing what action has been taken to correct the violation. All corrective action is subject to review and approval by ASTM Program Violation Corrected If the participant has corrected the violation, the participant will receive acknowledgement from ASTM s Director of Certification Programs. 13

14 Program Violation Not Corrected If the participant has not satisfactorily corrected the violation, the participant will receive a second program violation letter. From the date of the letter, the participant shall have 15 calendar days to make corrections or file an appeal Appealing a Program Violation The participant has 15 calendar days from the date of the violation letter to file an appeal of the violation. The appeals process is documented in Section 15 of this manual. Failure to file an appeal within 15 calendar days from the date of the violation letter forfeits the participant s opportunity to appeal the violation at a later date Suspension of Certification A participant who has filed an appeal may be suspended from the program as detailed in the product-specific operations manual until the appeal is held. If the appeal is upheld, the suspension will be lifted. If the appeal is denied, the participant s certification will be withdrawn Termination of Certification A participant is subject to termination from a certification program for having a program violation or failing to fulfill program obligations set forth in the governing documents. Termination voids the signed license agreement and cancels the participant s right to claim ASTM certification. Upon termination, the participant s listing is immediately deleted from the ASTM Directory of Certified Products. The participant shall discontinue claiming certification immediately. The participant shall promptly remove ASTM certification marks from products and all known advertising literature, specifications, software, websites, and so forth that make claims of ASTM certification Notification of Program Suspension or Termination of Certification The participant will promptly receive from ASTM a notification confirming its suspension or termination Termination for Nonpayment of Fees A participant may be terminated from the program for nonpayment of certification fees if 30 calendar days have passed since an invoice s due date and ASTM has not received payment Reinstatement A former participant can be reinstated to the program according to the procedures contained in the product-specific operations manual. Before reinstatement, the former participant is required to provide payment for any outstanding ASTM certification invoices. Upon ASTM receiving all outstanding payments, the applicant may proceed with the reinstatement process. 15. Appeals Process 15.1 Appealing a Program Violation Appeals of a program violation will be conducted at the request of the participant. To be considered, a written request for an appeal shall be sent to the ASTM Director of Certification Programs, who will coordinate and schedule the appeal hearing with the ASTM Committee on Certification Programs, within 15 calendar days of the date on the violation letter. The written appeal shall be specific in stating the reason(s) the violation is unwarranted and, if available, include supporting evidence indicating that a 14

15 program violation was not committed. Such information should be received by ASTM at least 30 calendar days in advance of the hearing date to allow sufficient time for distribution and review. If an appeal is not received within the time frame allotted, the violation will be upheld. As appropriate a representative of the TAC, the third-party laboratory, or the certification program staff shall have the opportunity to respond, in writing Conducting an Appeal Appeals are conducted via a hearing in which the CCP votes to uphold, modify, or overturn the subject program violation. Appeal hearings are typically held at ASTM Headquarters in the presence of the participant. If an appeal hearing at ASTM Headquarters will be significantly delayed because of the next meeting date of the CCP, a virtual meeting will be scheduled. The appellant and, as appropriate, a representative of the TAC, the third-party laboratory, or the certification program staff shall be invited to attend. The participant shall participate in the appeal hearing or else forfeit the appeal. In such a case, the program violation stands and no further appeal can be made Format of an Appeal Hearing The hearing will provide an opportunity for the appellant to present their objection orally, the certification program representative to provide orally a response, and members of the CCP to question the representatives on the issues raised in the appeal Quorum and Voting Requirements A quorum of at least two thirds of the members of the CCP shall be available to hold the appeal hearing. A two-thirds vote of the reviewing body present is required to overturn a violation. In the case of a tie, the program violation will stand Notification The CCP will inform the participant of its decision as soon as possible after the hearing and follow up with written confirmation. The participant has 15 calendar days from the date of the CCP notice to take any required corrective action and notify the Director of the Certification Program. If the violation is not corrected within the time frame allotted, the participant s listing(s) will be withdrawn and removed from the ASTM Directory of Certified Products. If corrective action is taken and completed by the participant in a reasonable period of time after the allotted time frame, the participant will be permitted to apply for reinstatement. Information provided to the CCP by the appeal participants is to be kept confidential. 15
