    During the D02.04 L meeting (December 2017) the request for a precision statement for Toluene in D6839 was brought up. In June 2018 data was presented and the committee approved the proposed revision of D6839-18. Information on Toluene is added to the title, the applicable range is added to the scope, the acceptance level for validation is added to table 4, the report requirement is added to table 9, the Repeatability and Reproducibility are added to table 10 and the calculated r & R for various concentrations are added to table 11. A Research Report is available with the details.
