    1.1This terminology standard includes definitions of terms used in the forensic sciences.

    1.2Legal and scientific and terms in common use that are generally understood or defined adequately in other readily available sources may not be included, except when dictionaries show multiple definitions and it seems desirable to indicate the definitions recommended for forensic science use.

    1.3Section A defines terms that are common to multiple areas of forensic science, whereas, the subsequent sections define terms pertaining to specific forensic science areas, as follows:

    Section A: General (Common) Forensic Science Terms

    The terms defined in Section A are the direct responsibility of Subcommittee E30.92, Terminology.

    Section B: Criminalistics

    The terms defined in Section B are the direct responsibility of Subcommittee E30.01, Criminalistics.

    Section B1: Terms for Seized Drug Analysis

    Section B2: Terms for Gunshot Residue (GSR) Analysis and Smokeless Powder Analysis

    Section B3: Terms for Paint Analysis

    Section B4: Terms for Textile, Fiber, Cord, and Tape Examination

    Section B5: Terms for Glass Examination

    Section C: Digital and Multimedia Evidence

    The terms defined in Section C are the direct responsibility of Subcommittee E30.12, Digital and Multimedia Evidence.

    Section C1: Terms for Computer Forensics

    Section C2: Terms for Digital Image Processing and Multimedia Evidence Examination

    Section C3: Terms for Magnetic Card Reader Examination

    Section C4: Terms for Facial Image Examination

    Section D: Interdisciplinary

    The terms defined in Section D are the direct responsibility of Subcommittee E30.11, Interdisciplinary Forensic Science Standards.

    Section E: Questioned Documents

    The terms defined in Section E were formerly the direct responsibility of Subcommittee E30.02, Questioned Documents, and are currently the direct responsibility of Subcommittee E30.90, Executive Committee.

    1.4Entries listed in Sections B–E reflect only those existing in Committee E30 standards current with the date of a once yearly review of Committee E30 standards. Changes to standards or entries following this date will appear in Sections B–E after the following year’s review date.

    1.5An alphabetical list of the terms defined in this standard is given in Appendix X1, which also identifies the section(s) in which each term is defined.

    1.6Definitions identical to those published by another standards-developing organization or ASTM committee are identified with the abbreviation of the name of the organization or the identifying document and ASTM committee; for example, ASME is the American Society of Mechanical Engineers.

    1.7In some cases different usage of a term in different fields has been noted.

    1.8This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
