Standard Practice for Addressing and Reporting Loss, Damage, or Destruction of Tangible Property
|Publication Date:||1 September 2009|
|ICS Code (Protection of and in buildings in general):||91.120.01|
This practice focuses on addressing and reporting loss, damage, or destruction (LDD) of tangible property.
LDD events are key aspects of risk management. Projecting the possibility or probability of LDD, discovering, disclosing, reporting, managing, and minimizing LDD is a critical and economic factor in the success of the owning or holding entity. This practice also establishes acceptable levels of LDD.
LDD events are often discovered as a result of a physical inventory or other audit. An actual LDD event can occur at any time during the property life cycle.
LDD events resulting from natural disasters or other incidents beyond the control of an entity are not subject to the criteria in 1.7. Reporting LDD events is required.
Natural degradation or normal wear and tear are not considered LDD events and are not addressed in this practice (they may, however, be considered in establishing residual value).
Loss, damage, and destruction, while three completely different events, are addressed as one for the purposes of this practice.
This practice does not address situations where LDD is an expected outcome, for example, destructive testing.
Assessing pecuniary liability for loss, damage, or destruction is not addressed in this practice; such assessments are subject to law.
This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
