This International Standard describes a method for the sampling of mercury of both vapour and solid phases on stationary source flue gas streams. Mercury generally exists in elemental (Hg0) and oxidized (Hg2+) forms, both in the vapour and solid phases in flue gases. The vapour-phase (gaseous) mercury is captured either isokinetically or non-isokinetically with a gold amalgamation trap after removing solid-phase (particulate) mercury with a filter. The oxidized mercury (Hg2+) in the vapour phase are converted to elemental mercury (Hg0) prior to the gold amalgamation trap. The concentration of gaseous mercury is determined using atomic absorption spectrometry (AAS) or atomic fluorescence spectrometry (AFS) after releasing mercury by heating the gold amalgamation trap. Separately, particulate mercury is collected isokinetically on a filter and the concentration is determined using cold vapour AAS or cold vapour AFS after dissolving the particulate mercury into solution.

The total concentration of mercury in flue gas is expressed as the sum of both gaseous and particulate mercury concentrations.

The gold amalgamation method is intended for short-term (periodic) measurements of gaseous mercury ranging from 0,01 μg/m3 to 100 μg/m3 with sampling volumes from 0,005 m3 to 0,1 m3 and sample gas flow rate between 0,2 l/min to 1 l/min. The measurement range of particulate mercury is typically from 0,01 μg/m3 to 100 μg/m3 with sampling volume from 0,05 m3 to 1 m3.

This document specifies one of the methods for evaluating the habitat function of soils and determining effects of soil contaminants and substances on the reproduction of the oribatid mite, Oppia nitens, by dermal and alimentary uptake. This chronic (28-day) test is applicable to soils and soil materials of unknown quality (e.g., contaminated sites, amended soils, soils after remediation, agricultural or other sites under concern and waste materials). This method is not intended to replace the earthworm or Collembola tests since it represents another taxonomic group (= mites; i.e., arachnids), nor the predatory mite test since this species represents a different trophic level and ecological niche.

Effects of substances are assessed using standard soil, preferably a defined artificial soil substrate. For contaminated soils, the effects are determined in the test soil and in a control soil. According to the objective of the study, the control and dilution substrate (dilution series of contaminated soil) should be either an uncontaminated soil with similar properties to the soil sample to be tested (reference soil) or a standard soil (e.g. artificial soil).

Information is provided on how to use this method for testing substances under temperate conditions.

This document is not applicable to substances for which the air/soil partition coefficient is greater than 1, or to substances with vapour pressure exceeding 300 Pa at 25°C.

NOTE The stability of the test substance cannot be assured over the test period. No provision is made in the test method for monitoring the persistence of the substance under test.

This document specifies the methods to improve accessibility of the visual display on small consumer products, where the status, function or operation information of the products are visually displayed, in order to minimize inconveniences that a variety of users including the disabled and the elderly may experience while using those products. Particularly, this document has focused on how to present information on small visual displays to make the product more accessible to the older people or the people with low vision or colour deficiency. Though it is an important to consider varying modalities or alternative ways in displaying information to make the product more accessible, they are not covered in this document. This document only covers accessibility with regard to visual presentation of information, but not audio or tactile-based display methods.

NOTE 1 Accessibility of a product can be enhanced by adopting alternative means of visual presentation of the information, which is not covered in this document. For the information about alternative presentation, ISO/IEC Guide 71, ISO 9241-112 and ISO 9241-171 can be useful.

NOTE 2 A comprehensive catalogue of accessibility needs and strategies for accommodation for all users (not only those with visual impairments) are out of scope for this document. Readers interested in this regard are referred to ISO/IEC 29138-1:2018 Information technology — User interface accessibility — Part 1: User accessibility needs.

This document is applied to various consumer products equipped with digital displays, in which the information of the product is visually presented. The products are usually equipped with built-in display panels. The consumer products include those hand-held products that can be easily carried by the user or those that are not portable but equipped with small displays, though the size of the product or the display is not specified. Some examples are an electronic thermometer, digital camera, air-conditioning system, and remote controller, while it cannot be limited to them.

This document is not applied to the following display devices: 1) Web- or application-based displays of ICT devices such as smart phones, smart TVs, and tablet PCs. They are usually operated based on an operating system, which makes them highly flexible or adjustable in presenting information. 2) Touch-based displays, which are used as a display as well as a control. There seems to exist many accessibility issues in the touch interface in those devices which are not only in the scope of displaying information but also related to touch control, and it would be better to deal with them together in another document. 3) Indicating lamp/light for simple alerts or alarms, of which accessibility issue is being handled in DIS 24550 " Ergonomics — Accessible design — Indicator lights of consumer products."

Some guidance of this document might not be applicable to some products such as oral or ear thermometers which have extremely small in-built displays.

This document specifies a multi-parameter method for the determination of total organic carbon (TOC), total nitrogen (TN) and total phosphorus (TP) in drinking water, raw water, ground water, surface water, sea water, saline water, process water, wastewater and industrial wastewater applications, after a chemical oxidation process. It is applicable to both dissolved and bound to suspended materials.

The method allows for determination of TOC ≥ 1 mg/l, TN ≥ 1 mg/l and TP ≥ 1 mg/l. The lower and upper working ranges are restricted by instrument-dependent conditions (for example sample volume, reaction chemistry amounts) and can be adjusted for a wider range.

The analysis procedure is carried out instrumentally by a single oxidation process under standard temperature and pressure.

Dissolved nitrogen gas is not included in the TN measurement in this method. Depending on the analysis conditions and when present in the sample, certain portion of elemental carbon, cyanide and cyanate can be included in the TOC result.

NOTE The method can be applied for the determination of total carbon (TC) and total inorganic carbon (TIC). Volatile or purgeable organic carbon (VOC, POC) can be determined separately by this method (see Annex A).
