America Makes, the National Additive Manufacturing Innovation Institute, and the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) have launched the Additive Manufacturing Standardization Collaborative (AMSC). The purpose of the AMSC is to coordinate and accelerate the development of industry-wide additive manufacturing (AM) standards and specifications and thereby facilitate the growth of the industry. Participation is open to any interested person.

A number of standards-developing organizations are engaged in setting standards for various aspects of additive manufacturing. The AMSC aims to coordinate a consistent, harmonized and non-contradictory set of AM standards between these parties. The collaborative will identify existing standards and standards in development, assess gaps and make recommendations for priority areas where there is a perceived need for additional standardization, including in relation to needs already identified in the America Makes Additive Manufacturing Technology Roadmap.

The AMSC inaugural meeting will be held March 31 at Penn State at the Navy Yard; in-person or remote participation requires advanced registration. Register for the meeting or learn more about participating in AMSC here C
