Rationale for Ballot: The Blue Book Manual for Form and Style of ASTM Standards (Mar 2013 edition) states in Section A7 Terminology: A7.1 Every standard should include a section on terminology. A7.1.1 All significant terms that may have a meaning more specialized or more restricted than the common dictionary meaning should be defined within a standard, or the terminology standard should be referenced. Therefore, the purpose of this ballot item is to add a section on terminology as required by ASTM. Renumber sections as required. Only the items marked are being balloted at this time.
