This document specifies a method for the determination of organic acids in animal feeding stuffs by Ion

Chromatography with conductivity detection (IC-CD).

The method is intended to be used for the determination of formic acid, lactic acid, propionic acid, citric

acid, fumaric acid and malic acid as active substances in feed additives, premixtures, compound feed and

water and for screening of acetic acid in the same matrices. This method determines the total extractable

concentration of the above mentioned organic acids and their salts.

It is advisable that the user of this standar determine the working range of the method for each organic

acid. The lower limit of the working range depends on the matrix and the interferences encountered. A

working range between 10 [mg/l] and 100 [mg/l] should be achievable.

The method was successfully tested in an inter-laboratory study in concentrations between 0,02 % up to

27 % of the above mentioned organic acids.

NOTE Limitation occurs during simultaneous determination of high concentration of lactic acid and low

concentration of acetic acid. If the ratio of concentration of lactic acid to acetic acid exceeds factor 20, the

determination of acetic acid is not guaranteed.

On the basis of the referred working range, sample weight and extraction volume, limits of quantification

(LOQ), as calculated (Table 1) should be achievable.

"This part of ISO 4254, intended to be used together with ISO 4254-1, specifies the safety requirements and their verification for the design and construction of self-propelled and trailed pick-up balers, including when combined with bale wrappers, used in agriculture for pressing of material (for example, forage, feedstock, straw), independent of the shape or size of the bales formed".

Move the second paragraph just after the NOTE as new fourth paragraph.

In the new third paragraph, replace the present text by the following:

"This part of ISO 4254, taken together with ISO 4254-1, deals with all the significant hazards (as listed in Table 1), hazardous situations and events relevant to self-propelled and trailed pick-up balers and for balers when combined with bale wrappers, when they are used as intended and under the conditions of misuse that are reasonably foreseeable by the manufacturer (see Clause 4)."

Add the following NOTE just after the current NOTE to read:

"NOTE Pick-up balers with integrated bale wrappers are covered in this part of ISO 4254, with the exception of the wrapping functions, which are covered in ISO 4254-14. Bale wrappers and the wrapping function of bale wrappers combined with pick-up balers, are covered in ISO 4254-14."

This document specifies a method for the gas-chromatographic determination of water in total particulate matter from the mainstream smoke. The smoking of cigarettes and collection of mainstream smoke are normally carried out in accordance with ISO 4387. However, the method of this part of ISO 10362 is also applicable to the determination of water in total particulate matter from the mainstream smoke obtained by non-standard smoking.

NOTE In countries not in a position to use the gas-chromatographic method, the determination of water in total particulate matter from the mainstream smoke should be performed by a Karl Fischer method (ISO 10362-2). In such cases, values obtained for water in total particulate matter from the mainstream smoke may be used with the addition of a note made in the expression of the results.

ISO 11783 as a whole specifies a serial data network for control and communications on forestry or agricultural

tractors and mounted, semi-mounted, towed or self-propelled implements. Its purpose is to standardize the method

and format of transfer of data between sensor, actuators, control elements, and information-storage and -display

units, whether mounted on, or part of, the tractor or implement. This part of ISO 11783 describes the management

of source addresses (SAs) for control functions (CFs) of electronic control units (ECUs), the association of

addresses with the functional identification of a device and the detection and reporting of network-related errors. It

also specifies procedures for initialization and response to brief power outages, and minimum requirements, for

network-connected ECUs.

This document is applicable to the determination of polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins (PCDDs), polychlorinated dibenzofurans (PCDFs), (together termed ‘dioxins’ (PCDD/Fs)) and dioxin-like PCBs and non-dioxin-like PCBs (dl-PCBs and ndl-PCBs) in animal feeding stuffs. Collaborative studies have been carried out. The method is suitable for the determination of dioxins, dl-PCBs and ndl-PCBs at the appropriate MRL in compound feed and ingredients e.g. oil, mineral clay. The method is applicable to samples containing trace level amounts of one or more dioxins, dioxin-like PCBs and non-dioxin-likePCBs. The limit of quantification (LOQ) is

— 0,05 pg/g (OCDD/F = 0,1 pg/g) for the relevant individual congeners of dioxins/furans,

— 0,05 pg/g for non-ortho PCBs,

— 10 pg/g for mono-ortho PCBs, and

— 100 pg/g for non-dioxin-like-PCBs.

For determination of dioxins and dioxin-like PCBs, the procedure can be used as confirmatory method as defined by Commission Regulation (EC) No 152/2009 for dioxins and dl-PCB in feed [1]. Confirmatory methods as described in this standard are high-resolution gas chromatography/high resolution mass spectrometry (HRGC/HRMS) methods. If only the analysis of non-dioxin-like PCBs is required, a GC-LRMS method can be used (e.g. EN 15741 [2]) provided that appropriate analytical performance criteria are met in the relevant range for the matrix of interest.

This document is split into four modules. Each module describes a part of the whole procedure (see Figure 1 and Figure 2) to be followed:

a) Module A: Description of standards which might be used;

b) Module B: Description of extraction procedures;

c) Module C: Description of clean-up procedures;

d) Module D: GC/HRMS determination.

Each module describes a part of the whole method as well as, when applicable, alternatives which should be equivalent. Each module has to be regarded as an example. Combining modules and/or alternatives gives a highly flexible, "performance based" procedure. It is permitted to modify the method if all performance criteria laid down in Commission Regulation (EC) No 152/2009 [1] are met.

Any deviation of the described method, combination of modules needs to be recorded as part of the QA/QC procedures of accredited laboratories and should be available on request.
