    Rationale

    This revision addresses the issue in the industry where samples are collected at temperatures warmer than the test method conditions. Samples are collected from various locations throughout the processing installation as well as at terminals and storage facilities were refrigeration of the sample are not feasible. The revision acknowledges the practicality of this sampling situation, while maintaining the intention of capturing the most representative sample. This issue was discussed at the last two meetings of the subcommittee and a ballot approved for revision.
