The OSAC Subcommittee for Fire Debris and Explosives has developed a new standard to guide a fire debris analyst how to report results and opinions of the forensic examination and analysis of fire debris and related evidence for the presence of ignitable liquids and ignitable liquid residues. There is currently no reporting results and opinions of ignitable liquids analysis document for fire debris 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.
