    Rationale

    The term culturable definitions that appear in D7687 Test Method for Measurement of Cellular Adenosine Triphosphate in Fuel and Fuel-associated Water with Sample Concentration by Filtration and D7463 Test Method for Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) Content of Microorganisms in Fuel, Fuel/Water Mixtures, and Fuel Associated Water are not harmonized. This ballot proposes a harmonized definition based on consensus among members of the D02.14 Fuel Microbiology WG. This ballot item is linked to a similar one for D7363 revision.
