MILWAUKEE—For the first time, national standards for remanufacturing, rebuilding and CNC retrofitting are now available on the Web at The standards will be on the Web for one year. Comments are encouraged, and after one year, a consensus will be reached. Vendors will become signatories by agreeing to abide by the standards, and customers can be listed as end users that support the standards and will expect compliance.

The standards are an outgrowth and development of an industrial manufacturer’s corporate standards. The standards are not meant to discourage originality or technical superiority but rather to provide a baseline of acceptable procedures. Enhancements and other distinguishing characteristics, such as specialization, can be enumerated within the vendor’s compliance to the standards.
