ASTM WK44897

    Work Item: 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



    1. Rationale

    This work is to remove references to D3177 (old sulfur standard) from D388, since D3177 is no longer on the books, and to correct a number of editorial irregularities. 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, and the editorial corrections will bring certain sections of D388 into compliance with more acceptable editorial formatting.
