    Rationale

    Given the potential significance of the FIA dyed gel issue, the purpose of this ballot is to add the following statement to both subsections 7.2 and 10.1 of Test Method D1319: Early in 2018, a key component of the Fluorescent Indicator Dyed Gel became unavailable. An alternative dye was substituted, but the reformulated dyed gel was later found to be unsuitable for the analysis of jet fuel, diesel fuel and gasoline samples. Although UOP LLC suspended manufacture and sale of the Fluorescent Indicator Dyed Gel upon learning of this issue, six lots of the reformulated dyed gel had already been distributed. In analyzing any sample type by Test Method D1319, users shall not report results obtained using any of the following lot numbers of Fluorescent Indicator Dyed Gel: 3000000975, 3000000976, 3000000977, 3000000978, 3000000979, and 3000000980.
