This International Standard is one of a series (ISO 15799, ISO 19204) providing guidance on the characterization of soils and soil materials in relation to their retention and habitat functions, and uses. It is appropriate in conjunction with the two other standards in this series. It provides guidance on the choice and evaluation of tests applied for ecotoxicological characterization of soils and soil materials. Recommendations for test strategies with respect to the protection of ground and surface waters and the maintenance of the habitat function of soil are included. The tests recommended represent a minimum test battery that may be accomplished by additional tests, or even be replaced by others, according to the intended uses or protection goals envisaged. The effect values indicated in this International Standard do not refer to regulation, but represent the lowest level at which a response is supposed to result in an adverse effect.

This document does not apply to branchpipes covered by EN 671, foam branchpipes covered by EN 16712-3, powder branchpipes, or branchpipes with a maximum working pressure above 40 bar.

NOTE 1 The Working Group has thoroughly addressed and discussed the issue of electrical safety in relation to using water branchpipes. However, an electrical test is not incorporated into this document as international experience, as well as research (NFPA handbook, French research, etc) have shown that any "artificial" or "laboratory style" testing will not take into account poor visibility and other conditions present on any fireground, nor the problem of estimating distances under these conditions. The end user is advised (through the operating instructions, see 8.1) that when fighting fires in or near electrical installations, the power should be cut off as soon as possible. Also, it is advised to maintain a maximum possible safety distance (at least 1 m up to 1 000 V) and to use a spray jet with a minimum spray angle of 30 °.

NOTE 2 It is essential to take into account reaction forces into consideration before choosing and operating branchpipes.

The document specifies the determination of radium-226 (226Ra) and radium-228 (228Ra) activity concentrations in drinking water samples by chemical separation of radium and its measurement using liquid scintillation counting. 226Ra and 228Ra are present in the environment as radionuclides from the 238U and 232Th decay series, as shown in Annex A.

The test method applies to the analysis of 0,5 kg of drinking water containing less than 100 mg/kg barium. If the barium concentration is higher than 100 mg/kg, it is recommended to reduce the volume of the test sample to be analysed so that the total content of barium in the sample does not exceed 50 mg.

Activity concentrations of 226Ra and 228Ra can vary widely according to local geological and climatic characteristics. 226Ra activity concentration range from some mBq/l in surface waters up to several tens of Bq/l in some natural groundwaters[8]; the guidance level for 226Ra in drinking water as recommended by WHO is 1 Bq/l[3][9]. 228Ra activity concentration range from a few mBq/l in surface waters up to several Bq/l in some natural groundwaters[8]; the guidance level for 228Ra in drinking water as recommended by WHO is 0,1 Bq/l[3][9].

Activity concentrations of 226Ra and 228Ra which can be measured by this test method utilizing currently available liquid scintillation counters goes down to 0,01 Bq/kg for 226Ra and 0,06 Bq/kg for 228Ra for a 0,5 kg sample mass and a 1 h counting time in a low background liquid scintillation counter.[10]

NOTE Adjustment of the test sample mass and counting time can lead to lower detection limits. As an example, a limit of detection of 0,04 Bq/kg can be achieved for 228Ra using a 0,5 kg test sample and a 2 h counting time; similarly a limit of detection of 0,02 Bq/kg can be achieved for 228Ra using a 1 kg test sample and a 2 h counting time.

The test method can be used for the fast detection of contamination of drinking water by radium in emergency situations or for routine environmental monitoring purposes.

ISO 5660-1 specifies a method for assessing the heat release rate and dynamic smoke production rate of specimen exposed in the horizontal orientation to controlled levels of irradiance with an external igniter. The heat release rate is determined by measurement of the oxygen consumption derived from the oxygen concentration and the flow rate in the combustion product stream. The time to ignition (sustained flaming) is also measured in this test.

The dynamic smoke production rate is calculated from measurement of the attenuation of a laser light beam by the combustion product stream. Smoke obscuration is recorded for the entire test, regardless of whether the specimen is flaming or not.

This International Standard specifies a method using scanning electron microscopy for determination of the concentration of inorganic fibrous particles in the air. The method specifies the use of gold-coated, capillary-pore, track-etched membrane filters, through which a known volume of air has been drawn. Using energy-dispersive X-ray analysis, the method can discriminate between fibres with compositions consistent with those of the asbestos varieties (e.g. serpentine and amphibole), gypsum, and other inorganic fibres. Annex C provides a summary of fibre types which can be measured.

This International Standard is applicable to the measurement of the concentrations of inorganic fibrous particles in ambient air. The method is also applicable for determining the numerical concentrations of inorganic fibrous particles in the interior atmospheres of buildings, for example to determine the concentration of airborne inorganic fibrous particles remaining after the removal of asbestos-containing products.

The range of concentrations for fibres with lengths greater than 5 μm, in the range of widths which can be detected under standard measurement conditions (see 6.2), is approximately 3 fibres to 200 fibres per square millimetre of filter area. The air concentrations, in fibres per cubic metre, represented by these values are a function of the volume of air sampled.

NOTE The ability of the method to detect and classify fibres with widths lower than 0,2 μm is limited. If airborne fibres in the atmosphere being sampled are predominantly < 0,2 μm in width, a transmission electron microscopy method such as ISO 10312 can be used to determine the smaller fibres.
