    ASTM C1790 contains a requirement that when strengths higher than the minimum in the specification are desired, they need to be specified separately by the purchaser. Other standards, such as ASTM C90, by contrast, contains requirements relative to how to determine compliance with strengths specified higher than the minimums. It is proposed in this ballot to modify ASTM C1790 to make the provision regarding requirements for units specified above the minimum the same as other C15.03 standards.
