ASTM International is nearing completion of ASTM WK22334, a working standard addressing glass used in furniture, according to a report by Urmilla Sowell, technical director for the Glass Association of North America (GANA). Sowell made the report during a meeting of the association's Tempering Division Technical Committee, held as part of the group's annual conference being held this week in Sarasota, Fla.

The standard, "New Specification for Consumer Safety for Glass Furniture," is currently being balloted by ASTM, she said.
