    Withdrawn Rationale:

    This guide was a practical, nonmathematical discussion for heterogeneous waste sampling strategies. This guide was consistent with the particulate material sampling theory, as well as inferential statistics, and served as an introduction to the statistical treatment of sampling issues.

    Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee D34 on Waste Management, this guide was withdrawn in January 2015 in accordance with section 10.5.3.1 of the Regulations Governing ASTM Technical Committees, which requires that standards shall be updated by the end of the eighth year since the last approval date.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This guide is a practical, nonmathematical discussion for heterogeneous waste sampling strategies. This guide is consistent with the particulate material sampling theory, as well as inferential statistics, and may serve as an introduction to the statistical treatment of sampling issues.

    1.2 This guide does not provide comprehensive sampling procedures, nor does it serve as a guide to any specification. It is the responsibility of the user to ensure appropriate procedures are used.

    This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
