Dr. Steven Spivak

Professor Emeritus, Ph.D.
Professor Spivak served as Chair of the Department of Fire Protection Engineering from 1993 until March 2001, where he’d been on the university faculty since 1970. He’s taken “early retirement” and is continuing an active professional career from Falls Church, Virginia (phone 703-845-8696, fax 703-845-7555). He holds B.S. and M.S. degrees in textile engineering from Philadelphia University and Georgia Tech., and a Ph.D. in polymer and fiber science from the University of Manchester’s Institute of Science and Technology (UMIST/UK). He introduced and taught courses on fiber and textile science, product standards and standardization, as well as fabrics and furnishings flammability.

Dr. Spivak is a Fellow of the Standards Engineering Society (North America), a Chartered Textile Technologist and Fellow of The Textile Institute (CText, FTI), and Honorary Member of ASTM International. He served four terms on the Board of Directors of the American national Standards Institute (ANSI), and for a decade chaired the ANSI-CPSC coordinating committee and voluntary standards forum with the US Consumer Product Safety Commission. From 1991-1995 he was chairman of the International Organization for Standardization’s Consumer Policy Committee (known as ISO/COPOLCO) and has appeared often in the ISO Bulletin.

Steven Spivak is the author of 80 scientific-technical publications and over 200 other trade press articles on fiber and textile science, consumer product standards, fabrics, clothing and furnishings flammability, and on standardization policy, practices and education. His most recent book by S. M. Spivak and F. C. Brenner is Standardization Essentials: Principles and Practice, published in 2001 by Marcel Dekker [see www.dekker.com]. He remains active with many trade associations, professional and technical societies including ASCR and the ASCR Foundation (www.ascr.org), ASTM International, ANSI, NASFM’s Science Advisory Committee, SFPE, ISO and others.
