    Significance and Use

    4.1 A petroleum products and lubricants testing laboratory plays a crucial role in product quality management and customer satisfaction. It is essential for a laboratory to provide quality data. This document provides guidance for establishing and maintaining a quality system in a laboratory.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This practice covers the establishment and maintenance of the essentials of a quality system in laboratories engaged in the analysis of petroleum products and lubricants. It is designed to be used in conjunction with Practice D6299.

    Note 1This practice is based on the quality management concepts and principles advocated in ANSI/ISO/ASQ Q9000 standards, ISO/IEC 17025, ASQ Manual,2 and ASTM standards such as D3244, D4182, D4621, D6299, D6300, E29, E177, E456, E548, E882, E994, E1301, E1323, STP 15D,3 and STP 1209.4

    1.2 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 requirements prior to use.
