Abstract In Europe, standardisation on ceramic matrix composites (CMCs) officially started in 1989, when CEN TC 184 on Advanced Technical Ceramics was launched. The scope of TC 184 covers testing methods, and no efforts are paid to the development of material and product standards as yet. The work programme of TC 184 in the area of CMCs, aimed at the establishment of testing methods for the generation of reliable data for design purposes is described, and some standard test methods are briefly commented upon. Similar activities in other standardisation organisations such as ASTM, ISO and JIS are identified.
