According to the editorial guidelines of D16, when we have a method developed and maintained by D16 which has a full precision and repeatability statement we will no longer list methods outside of the jurisdiction of D16 for the same property. D16 guidelines excerpt: 2. Non D16 standards will not be included in D16 specifications if an adequate D16 method is available. It was voted that we would ballot replacing D1209 with D8005, Standard Test Method for Color of Clear Liquids (Platinum-Cobalt Scale), as an alternate to D5386, Standard Test Method for Color of Liquids Using Tristimulus Colorimetry, for the measurement of color.
