The Aluminum Association and 16 other national and regional aluminum organizations around the globe have signed an accord for an International Designation System for Unalloyed Aluminum. The signing organizations have agreed to use the same alpha-numerical system for designating unalloyed aluminum for primary aluminum metal and to register chemical composition limits for such metal under the rules defined in the accord. Additionally, a newly printed registration record, "International Designations and Chemical Composition Limits for Unalloyed Aluminum," is now available and supersedes the former registration record for North America.
