ASTM WK44897

    Revision of D388 - 12 Standard Classification of Coals by Rank

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: D388 - 12

    Developed by Subcommittee: D05.18 | Committee D05 | Contact Staff Manager



    WK44897

    1. Rationale

    This work is to remove references to D3177 (old sulfur standard) from D388, since D3177 is no longer on the books. D4239 (new sulfur standard) has replaced D3177 among D05 standards, and D4239 has previously been added to D388 as well. Removal of D3177 from D388 will complete the transition to the new D4239 standard within D388.
