    Withdrawn Rationale:

    This test method covers qualitatively determining the presence of lead salts in leather.

    Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee D31 on Leather, this test method was withdrawn in September 2017. This standard is being withdrawn without replacement because it is a qualitative method which uses an obsolete technology to detect the presence of lead. As lead is a restricted substance, this test method is no longer sufficient. In addition, U.S. Department of Defense users were asked to defend the continuation of this test method. All declined to comment.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method covers qualitatively determining the presence of lead salts in leather.

    1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.

    1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
