Previous justification statement on the preceding ballot.
Historically ASTM D35.93 has avoided definitions for applications.
With the inception of subcommittee D35.06, it is critical to elaborate specifications and guides of geosynthetics in applications is needed clear terms defining what the applications are.
At the same time, ISO has defined applications in the scope of TC221 WG2 on terminology.
The intended process is to ballot accepted international terms for ISO with the understanding that normalization of terms and definitions for end-users and the community is critical.
