    1. Rationale

    A revision of D5928, Standard Practice for Screening of Waste for Radioactivity, was included on a Committee D34 ballot closing October 22, 2017. A voter identified the need for several enhancements to this Standard Practice; however, this item was in danger of expiring and the voter did not want to see this item expire. Therefore, the item was approved as balloted under the understanding that the enhancements would be ballot as soon as practicable after reapproval of the standard. The standard has been renewed and the promised consideration of further enhancements are presented to membership as per below.
