ASTM WK56043

    New Terminology for Relating to the Examination of Fire Debris

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Developed by Subcommittee: E30.01 | Committee E30 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Scope

    This is a compilation of terms and corresponding definitions that are used in fire debris analysis. Legal or scientific terms that are generally understood or defined adequately in other readily available sources may not be included.


    forensic science; terminology; fire debris


    The standard is needed in order to provide a single source for terms that was developed through consensus. It is anticipated that the standard will be used by practitioners, members of the court (lawyers, judges, jury members), and other interested parties when terms related to fire debris analysis require explanation.

    The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
