In 1963 it became a Federal Award and subsequently the conditions were broadened to include papers relevant to the field of heat treatment.”

The award is based on achievement where the principal evidence may be other than published papers. In 1995, it was decided that the award “may be made once each calendar year to an individual, group of individuals or a Company/Organisation that has made a significant contribution to the industrial practice of metallurgy or materials engineering. This Award is open to both members and non-members”.
