    Revision of D7463 - 08 Standard Test Method for Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) Content of Microorganisms in Fuel, Fuel/Water Mixtures and Fuel Associated Water

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: D7463 - 14a

    Developed by Subcommittee: D02.14 | Committee D02 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Rationale

    D7463 was balloted for reapproval D02 (04-13) item 61 and received two multi-part negative ballots that were considered persuasive. The proposed revisions to D7463 are extensive, but are not primarily related to the test procedure. The proposed revisions are being balloted in multiple ballots to improve clarity and simplify consensus agreement. Each revision ballot is considered independent and may be approved without simultaneous approval of the other revision ballots. This ballot proposes revisions to section 12 as follows in Summary of Proposed Changes


    adenosine triphosphate; ATP; bacteria; biocontamination; biodeterioration; biomass; fuel; fungi; microbe; microbiology;
