    Withdrawn Rationale:

    This practice provides procedures to be used by forensic document examiners (Guide E4441) using image capture and storage technology.

    Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee E30 on Forensic Sciences, this practice was withdrawn in January 2020 in accordance with section 10.6.3 of the Regulations Governing ASTM Technical Committees, which requires that standards shall be updated by the end of the eighth year since the last approval date.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This practice provides procedures to be used by forensic document examiners (Guide E444) using image capture and storage technology.

    1.2 These procedures are applicable whether the use of the image capture technology involves an item(s) associated with a matter under investigation (questioned or known items), or is for reference.

    1.3 These procedures include evaluation of the sufficiency of the available imaging capture and storage technologies.

    1.4 Procedures are also outlined for image archiving.

    1.5 The particular methods employed in a given case depend upon the nature of the item, or the question at hand, or both.

    1.6 This practice might not cover all aspects of the use of image capture and storage technology involving unusual or uncommon items.

    1.7 This practice cannot replace the requisite knowledge, skills, or abilities acquired through appropriate education, training (Guide E2388), and experience and should be used in conjunction with sound professional judgment.

    1.8 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.
