AATCC takes precautions to reduce spread of COVID-19

Mar '20
Along with the rest of the textile community and the world, AATCC is taking precautions to help reduce the spread of COVID-19. AATCC, headquartered in US, is the world’s leading not-for-profit association, which provides test method development, quality control materials, and professional networking for members in about 50 countries throughout the world.

For several years, AATCC has offered remote participation in addition to on-site attendance for meetings. For Spring 2020, AATCC committee meetings, all attendees will participate by phone or web. Meetings will be held as originally scheduled from May 19-21, 2020. Most meetings are open to all interested parties. One does not have to be a member of the committee or of AATCC to participate. Remote attendance is limited to 50 per meeting, according to AATCC.

Because many participants in the AATCC proficiency testing programmes are experiencing interruptions to normal work schedules, deadlines to return proficiency testing data have been extended. Registered labs should watch for emails regarding changes to specific rounds.

Staff at the AATCC technical centre are working limited hours in the offices and labs. They are continuing to work from home to provide members and customers the highest quality, most timely service possible, but you may experience some delayed responses. Shipping time and costs are also affected by worldwide travel restrictions. The AATCC technical centre is not open for visitors or corporate member use of lab equipment.
