    Significance and Use

    5.1 This guide promotes the importance of effective and efficient use of resources to satisfy various needs of participants: those who furnish property–customers and owners, those who receive customer or entity property–suppliers, contractors, and subcontractors, and the audit community, while providing reasonable assurance of effective internal controls.

    5.2 The objective of this guide is to promote a life-cycle approach using the elements of good internal controls.

    5.3 For optimization, this guide may be used in conjunction with Practice E2279 and Practice E2452.

This includes the infrastructure and processes and subprocesses in the efforts of acquisition, use, and disposition.

    1.2 This guide covers property that is owned by a customer or a buyer (referred to as customer-owned property) that is either directly furnished by a buyer, customer, or acquired by a supplier on behalf of a customer where title to the property ultimately vests with the customer while in the possession of a supplier, contractor or subcontractor.

    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, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
