1.3 These procedures include evaluation of the sufficiency of the material (questioned, or known, or both) available for examination.

1.4 Procedures are also given for taking exemplars from typewriters and the proper handling of typewriters or parts of typewriters that might be relevant.

1.5 These methods can also be applicable (in whole or in part) to examinations of documents prepared on other impact and nonimpact printing devices.

1.6 The particular methods employed in a given case will depend upon the nature of the material available for examination.
