Committee E27 on Hazard Potential of Chemicals

    Staff Manager: W Scott Orthey 610-8329730


    Committee Scope

    The scope of the Committee shall be the development and standardization of physical and chemical test methods, nomenclature, and the promotion of knowledge and stimulation of research bearing on the hazard potential of chemicals related to fire explosion, and uncontrolled energy release. Assessment of hazard potential does not include human health-related effects.
    The area of interest to the Committee is the development of test procedures for determining the degree of susceptibility of materials to ignition or release of energy under varying industrial conditions. This includes experimental procedures and estimation methods.
    The work of this Committee will be coordinated with other ASTM committees and other organizations having mutual interest.
