International trade in ceramic tile will be at stake this week as delegates meet at Clemson University to develop new standards for a building material that’s easy to take for granted but covers floors, walls and countertops around the world. Technical Committee 189 meets at the Madren Center through Friday. It’s part of the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), based in Geneva, Switzerland. Decisions are expected to influence the global tile business at a time when the U.S. industry is bouncing back from years of factories moving overseas. For information, contact Paul Alongi (864-656-1050, email@example.com).
