The following new publications from CEN, the European Standards Organisation, of relevance to analytical measurement in support of regulations, are now available:

CEN/TS 16172:2013 – Sludge, treated biowaste and soil – Determination of elements using graphite furnace atomic absorption spectrometry (GF-AAS). This Technical Specification specifies the determination of trace elements in aqua regia or nitric acid digest solutions of sludge, treated biowaste and soil, using atomic absorption spectrometry with electrothermal atomisation in a graphite furnace. The method is applicable for the determination of the following elements: Arsenic (As), cadmium (Cd), cobalt (Co), lead (Pb), antimony (Sb), thallium (Tl), vanadium (V). This method may be applied to other elements. The lower working range is approximately 0.1 mg/kg to 0.01 mg/kg, depending on the element to be determined.

CEN/TS 16175-1:2013 – Sludge, treated biowaste and soil – Determination of mercury – Part 1: Cold-vapour atomic absorption spectrometry (CV-AAS).

CEN/TS 16175-2:2013 – Sludge, treated biowaste and soil – Determination of mercury – Part 2: Cold-vapour atomic fluorescence spectrometry (CV-AFS). This, and the above document, specifies the methods to be used for the determination of mercury in aqua regia or nitric acid digest solutions of sludge, treated biowaste and soil.

EN 16466-1:2013 – Vinegar – Isotopic analysis of acetic acid and water – Part 1: 2H-NMR analysis of acetic acid
EN 16466-2:2013 – Vinegar – Isotopic analysis of acetic acid and water – Part 2: 13C-IRMS analysis of acetic acid
EN 16466-3:2013 – Vinegar – Isotopic analysis of acetic acid and water – Part 3: 18O-IRMS analysis of water in wine vinegar
