During balloting of WK65872 for five-year reapproval, one committee member voted negative because E328 was not an SI-only standard. See Form and Style Manual Part H Use of SI Units in ASTM Standards, especially H1.2.1 Given ASTMs mission to be the foremost developer and provider of voluntary consensus standards with global recognition and use, ASTM technical committees are urged to give diligent consideration to the use of SI (metric) units as the standard unit of measurement. The body of E328 contains non-SI measurements in 3 sections, primarily with measurement of specimen dimensions. This ballot will revise the E328 Scope, and 9.3, 16.1, and 16.2.
