The American Standards Association (ASA) is a federation of technical societies, trade associations, and departments of the Federal Government. Its purpose is to promote engineering progress and economy in industrial production and processes through standardization of definitions, specifications, ratings, and methods of test affecting industrial equipment, manufacturing practices, consumer's goods, and the like. The Institute of Radio Engineers, as one of the sponsoring groups, has played an active role in the affairs of the Association; and now anticipates an even closer participation in matters of over-all policy and standardization in the field of radio and electronics. It is believed, therefore, that readers of the Proceedings of the IRE and Waves and Electrons will be interested in a brief description of the ASA, its organization and functions, and the nature of IRE collaboration in its work.
