Standards Development Award
Updated October 2016
The Committee on Standards, STC-01, will select up to five newly completed standards projects annually for committee recognition of major contributions to the development or revision of a specific ASABE standard. All new or revised standards developed since the publication of the last available standards CD are eligible and will be ranked by effort expended by the development committee as well as expected benefits to ASABE members and end users of the standard or product standardized.
Chairs of the originating committee for a standard should consider providing documentation to assist STC-01 in determining the significant attributes of the standard(s) published by their membership.
