Registration is now open (register here) for a December 8 America Makes and American National Standards Institute (ANSI) virtual event on Inspection/Monitoring to Meet Regulatory Requirements: Additive Manufacturing (AM) Standardization. A draft agenda is also available, with the program featuring a morning session on applied research, industry standards, guidance documents, and/or conformance programs, especially for in-situ process monitoring or nondestructive evaluation (NDE), to meet regulatory requirements of additively manufactured parts. An afternoon panel discussion will focus on issues or gaps that exist related to inspection/ monitoring (in-situ or NDE) to facilitate certification of AM parts. Attendee advance registration is required by December 3. Speakers will be registered automatically.

The December 8 meeting is the latest in a series of events hosted by the America Makes and ANSI Additive Manufacturing Standardization Collaborative (AMSC) to further develop and refine the AMSC Standardization Roadmap for Additive Manufacturing, last published in June 2018. The AMSC was established in 2016 to coordinate and accelerate the development of standards and specifications needed to grow the additive manufacturing industry. The group continues to track work by standards developing organizations and others to address the recommendations identified in the roadmap.

“We are pleased to bring together a dynamic group of subject matter experts to talk about cutting edge research and standardization activity for additive manufacturing in different sectors,” said America Makes technology director, Brandon Ribic.

“Together with our partner, America Makes, ANSI has been leveraging the virtual event format to present the latest developments in additive manufacturing standardization and R&D. We look forward to another informative dialogue,” said ANSI president and CEO S. Joe Bhatia.
