This specification covers plastic guard equipment and guard systems used by workers for temporary insulation on electric power circuits.
Formerly under the jurisdiction of ASTM Committee F18 on Electrical Protective Equipment for Workers and Subcommittee F18.25 on Insulating Cover-up Equipment, this specification was withdrawn in October 2008 in accordance with section 10.5.3.1 of the Regulations Governing ASTM Technical Committees, which requires that standards shall be updated by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. Additionally, the standard was rolled into the latest revision of F 712 and the committee believes that this standard is no longer necessary.
