Early Acquisition and Preservation of Information in a Motor Vehicle Accident
Published June 1, 1998 by SAE International in United States
The purpose of this SAE Standard is to offer simplified and prioritized guidelines for collecting and preserving on-scene data related to motor vehicle accidents. It is intended that these guidelines improve the effectiveness of data collection, which will assist subsequent analysis and reconstruction of a particular incident. The document is to guide early data collectors whose objectives include documenting information related to the incident. it may be used by law enforcement personnel, safety officials, insurance adjusters and other interested parties. The document identifies categories of scene physical features that deteriorate relatively quickly and recomends documentation task priorities. Detailed methods of collecting data are not part of this document. However, some widely used methods are described in the references in Seciton 2.

The SAE Accident Investigation and Reconstruction Practices (AIRP) Technical Standards Committee is dedicated to the development of recommended practices and information reports in the fields of accident reconstruction/analysis.STRUCTURE: The committee is composed of a series forums dealing with broad issues dealing with accident investigation and reconstruction. The forums are also based for the Task Forces that develop the J-standards. Current forums and task forces include Collision Damage and Classification, J224; Truck Damage Classification, J1301; Early Acquisition and Preservation of Information, J1674; Accident Reconstruction and Terminology, J1675; Generalized Damage Measurement, J1676; Event Data Records; Motor Vehicle Fire Investigation Advisory Group; Vehicle-Road Friction Measurement, J2505; Uncertainty in Accident Reconstruction; Accident Reconstruction Technology Collection, ARDC2007.

* Redlines comparisons are available for those standards listed in the Revision History that contain a radio button. A redline comparison of the current version against a revision is accomplished by selecting the radio button next to the standard and then selecting 'compare'. At this time, Redline versions only exist for some AMS standards. SAE will continue to add redline versioning with ongoing updates to SAE MOBILUS.
