Paper Abstract

An overview is given of the various standards committees addressing tests for fiber environmental performance and reliability. Applicable FOTPs of the EIA are are reviewed and improvements are suggested. Fiber strength theory is clarified in some detail. A tentative new standards working group should address a number of reliability issues in which standards are now lacking.
