ASTM WK42046

    Work Item: ASTM WK42046 - Revision of E1546 - 09a Standard Guide for Development of Fire-Hazard-Assessment Standards

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: E1546 - 09a

    Developed by Subcommittee: E05.33 | Committee E05 | Contact Staff Manager



    1. Rationale

    The common elements of fire-risk-assessment standards and fire-hazard-assessment standards are far more numerous than their differences. Combining the two standards (E1546 and E1776) will be more efficient and will focus the users attention on the differences, thereby making it more likely that each type of assessment will be used where and when it is most appropriate. No substantive changes have been made to the content of either standard; the only changes made were those needed for logical flow and clarity.
