    Rationale

    In response to a negative vote received in April, 2019 regarding taking digital images, we have clarified the purpose of obtaining post-test digital images. In addition, a minor edit was made to the reporting of area correction. Only the four sections of the standard shown below are being balloted with changes indicated in red underline. If you have any questions, please call or email me to discuss.
