    1. Rationale

    This ballot is a continuation of a series of ballots on standards under the jurisdiction of C15.02. There are considerable differences in the section order and titles between similar standards even when similar information is given. ASTM publishes a Form and Style for ASTM Standards which is available on their website. The purpose of this ballot is not the change the intent within the standard but rather to provide 1) consistency where able between standards and 2) use the manual Form and Style for ASTM Standards as a guideline. This ballot item proposed to change the name of selection sections, relocate selected sections and reorganize selected sections into other sections.
