    WK45644

    1. Rationale

    The sample perishability guidance provided in D6469 is not consistent with that provided in D7474 Practice for Manual Sampling of Liquid Fuels, Associated Materials and Fuel System Components for Microbiological Testing. This ballot item proposes two changes to D6469 in order to harmonize the guidance therein with that provided in the sampling practice.
