Active Standard: A962 / A962M - 13b
A962 has Annex A1, which outlines requirements for adding totally new alloys to the specifications referencing A962. Annex A1 includes requirements for a letter from a user requesting addition of the new alloy, and for a supporting data package. However, it has long been the practice of several A01 subcommittees to add a material that is not totally new, but rather that exist in other A01 or B02.07 specifications, without such a user letter or data package. That practice has been formalized in other general requirements specifications, and particularly in A960 and A961. This action proposes a similar Annex for A960. B02.07 materials are addressed because of the ongoing movement of B02.07 alloys that meet the definition of a steel in A941, but that were once considered non-ferrous alloys. The action also includes minor editorial revisions to Annex 1 in A1.1.1.
