1.1 This specification covers a group of common requirements that, unless otherwise specified in the individual product specification, shall apply to steel forgings under any of the following specifications issued by ASTM:
1.2 In case of conflict in requirements, the requirements of the individual product specifications shall prevail over those of this specification.

The acceptance of any such additional requirements shall be dependent on negotiations with the supplier and must be included in the order.
1.4 If, by agreement, forgings are to be supplied in a partially completed condition, that is, all of the provisions of the product specification have not been filled, then the material marking (see Section ) and certification (see Section ) shall reflect the extent to which the product specification requirements have been met.
1.5 As noted in the Certification Section (), the number and year date of this specification, as well as that of the product specification, are required to be included in the product certification.
