The technical objectives of this symposium are: (1) to identify those product quality areas in which development is active, (2) to indicate requirements for improved (or new) referee and developmental procedures, (3) to point out wherein product specifications may be affected, and (4) to serve as a forum. Nine papers were presented. One of these discussed needs from the car manufacturer's point of view, while the other eight can be considered as responses by those engaged in various aspects of fuel development. Although the papers were independently prepared, the symposium can be appraised in terms of “need and response.” Since all nine papers discussed both referee and developmental problems, the author of this summary feels that it is necessary to state, as terms of reference, his understanding of the terms: “specification,” “referee test,” and “developmental test.”
