Re: Non-compliance by test house: What to do?
I'll part-answer one of my own questions then:
Yesterday, four days after posting my questions, I received my copy of ASTM Standardization News. Page 24-25, describes a new initiative from ASTM to have a register of firms that are validated by ASTM (in some way) as providing compliant data.
I'll have a look at the service and report back. Meantime, as for horror stories, I'm all ears, no names, no pack drill needed.
