ASTM and Kuwait Society of Engineers Sign Cooperation Agreement

ASTM International and the Kuwait Society of Engineers have signed a cooperation agreement to enhance the relationship between the professionals of the two organizations. Ayad Al-Hamoud, chairman of KSE, and Nick Ecart, ASTM director of business development for Europe, Middle East and Africa, signed the document at KSE headquarters in Kuwait City.

Supported by ASTM's local partner in Kuwait, the National Consulting Bureau Co., the agreement strengthens the link between the engineering community in Kuwait and the technical resources available through ASTM International. The agreement features a number of collaborative activities benefiting the members of both organizations.

Cooperative promotion, training, and upcoming meetings and events are highlighted in the agreement. In addition, KSE member organizations may receive preferential online access to the latest versions of ASTM standards. Further aspects of the agreement specify that ASTM will provide editorial content for inclusion in Al-Mohandesoon magazine, the official publication of the Kuwait Society of Engineers. Another key component of the cooperation involves the promotion of ASTM membership to KSE members.
