ASTM holds cement forum in Kuwait

June 2015

ASTM (American Society for Testing and Materials) International held its first-ever cement conference and workshop in Kuwait City, which was attended by more than 250 people from ministries and companies each day over the course of the two-day event.

Sponsored by the Kuwait Cement Company, the event (held in April 27 and 28) featured a training workshop on testing standards and quality control for the cement and concrete industry, in addition to training and awareness programmes of key ASTM standards that support all aspects of construction across Kuwait.

The workshop was held under the patronage of the Ministry of Public Works and endorsed by the Public Authority of Industry, Ministry of Defence, and the Kuwait Society of Engineers.

Since 1929, ASTM has been involved in creating testing standards, performing laboratory inspections and conducting proficiency testing programmes for the cement and concrete industry.
