Please be advised that a New Work Item Proposal has been loaded to the BSI Standards Development Portal for comment;  this is different from the proposal that we advised about last week.  We hope this will assist in increasing awareness of the Standards Development Portfolio.

Any comments received will be submitted to AMT/8 - Additive Manufacturing for consideration when deciding the UK response to ISO.

Proposal: ISO/ASTM PWI 52928 Additive Manufacturing of Metals -- Feedstock Materials -- Powder Life Cycle Management.  You can get the full details of this proposal from

This document specifies requirements and describes aspects for the lifecycle management of metal feedstock materials for powder based additive manufacturing processes.  Those aspects include: Powder properties, Powder lifecycle, Test methods and Powder quality assurance.

There is no International Standard for Powder Life Cycle Management available yet.  Such a Standard will fill an existing gap for powder quality assurance in the AM industry.

The end date for the comments period is 10th December 2020.  If you have any comments or need more information, please contact Sami Ortiz at MTA (email:
