    Significance and Use

    4.1 This standard is to be used by those concerned with the development of fire-test-response standards.

    4.2 The resultant fire-test-response standards are intended to be useful in one or more of the following areas, among others: product development, quality control, product comparisons, screening, information to be used as part of a fire hazard or a fire risk assessment, and regulatory purposes.

    4.3 This practice is intended to be useful to users of fire-test-response standards because it provides much of the general rationale for the development and use of such standards.

    4.4 This practice is not intended to provide guidance for the preparation of fire hazard assessment standards or fire risk assessment standards.

    4.5 This practice is not intended to provide guidance for the preparation of standards not related to fire-test responses of materials, products or assemblies.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This practice is a supplement to Form and Style for ASTM Standards2, which shall be consulted in writing all ASTM standards.

    1.2 This practice contains, directly or by reference, all of the information required to comply with the policy on fire standards and the additional guidelines recommended by Committee E05.

    1.3 This practice, intended to assist ASTM Committees, establishes guidelines and criteria for the preparation of fire-test-response standards (that is, standards for response to heat or flame under prescribed conditions).

    1.4 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.

    1.5 This fire standard cannot be used to provide quantitative measures.
