Standards are critical to the smooth, efficient functioning of our highly technical society. So important are standards that over 580 organizations in this country consider standardization to be a major or important part of their work. Their efforts in developing and disseminating standards contribute directly to the success of our nation's standardization programs. This directory describes their activities in the fields, products, and services in which they specialize.

The National Bureau of Standards assists these organizations under Congressional authorization which directs "cooperation with other Government Agencies and with private organizations in the establishment of standard practices, incorporated in codes and specifications.” Special needs of standardizing groups are met through additional Bureau functions which include provision of new and better standards for measurement, determination of physical constants and properties of materials and devel. opment of methods for testing.

This Directory is designed to serve the needs of those interested or engaged in national standard. ization activities. It should be of particular value to manufacturers, engineers, purchasing agents, and writers of standards and specifications.
