New Terminology for Relating to Gunshot Residue Analysis

1. Scope

This terminology standard is a compilation of terms and corresponding definitions that are used in gunshot residue analysis. Some legal or scientific terms that are generally understood or defined adequately in other readily available sources are included.


Gunshot Residue; Terminology


There is currently no comprehensive terminology document for gunshot residue analysis that has been generated through a consensus process. This standard is intended to fill that void. It is anticipated that the standard will be used by practitioners, forensic students or trainees, and members of the court.

The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
