Industry standards organizations are very important within manufacturing industries to assure product standardization and interchangeability.  Gates was a long time member of the Rubber Manufacturer’s Association (RMA) until it changed to the Association For Rubber Products Manufacturers Association (ARPM) a few years ago.  Gates continues to maintain its membership with ARPM and actively participates in its technical and leadership committees.

Technical standards and bulletins on a wide variety of topics pertaining to belt drive systems are available from ARPM at

ARPM also represents the United States interests with belt drive systems on an international level through the American National Standards Institute to the International Standards Organization (ISO).  Gates is committed to maintaining belt interchangeability and common practices within the industry on a global basis.
