No. There is no universal international standard for Portland cement because every country has their own standard. The United States uses the specification prepared by the American Society for Testing and Material (ASTM C-150) Standard Specification for Portland cement. A few other countries have also adopted this, however, there are countless other conditions. Unfortunately, they do not use the same criteria for measuring properties and defining physical characteristics so they can be virtually “non-translatable”. The European Cement Association located in Brussels, Belgium, publishes a book entitled “Cement Standards of the World”.
