International standardization of the use of chemicals

A large abundance of elements and materials used in different organizations and in different types of production, has a large number of relevant standards and requirements for operation. Since interaction with temperatures affects a particular element in completely different ways, it is necessary to take into account all possible risks - not only financial, but also physical. Today, the scientific and technological process is developing at an accelerated pace, and in order to prevent such errors with the use of incorrect equipment or incorrect material by an incorrect method, such international recommendations and documents are created that prescribe norms and requirements at the local or global level. These documents are international standards. International institutions for standardization create a number of norms and rules that are prescribed for certain areas of human activity, thus making it possible to unify the requirements for the implementation of activities in a particular industry. The availability of these international documents allows an enterprise or organization to stay abreast of the latest requirements, which greatly simplifies the scaling and development of the company at the international level. Today we will introduce you to some of the most recent international standards.

Soil and waste - Determination of Chromium (VI) in solid material by alkaline digestion and ion chromatography with spectrophotometric detection (ISO 15192: 2021)

EN ISO 15192: 2021

Solid materials have a certain number of norms and requirements for processing and interaction with them. Today, chemical elements are among the most popular for creating various elements of the industrial system, as well as fertilizers, because they are quite effective in terms of depreciation costs and also dense in their physical characteristics. To create norms and rules for interaction with solid elements for the duration of their service life as well as safety issues, such international standards as EN ISO 15192: 2021 are being created.

2019-10-24: WI created erroneously as adoption of ISO 15192: 2010 then corrected to be under VA ISO lead based on ISO ed.2

A feature of this international standard is that its initial prototype is another international document and this standard is a kind of adaptation of the previous document, which introduces certain additions. That is why, if you apply the above-mentioned standard, we recommend that you familiarize yourself with the updates implemented in this document.

Soil, waste, treated biowaste and sludge - Determination of loss on ignition

EN 15935: 2021

A feature of some international standards is that they may not be separate objects, but complementary, or updates to previous international standards. One such example is the international standard EN 15935: 2021.

This document specifies a method for the determination of the loss on ignition (LOI) at 550 ° C. The dry matter is determined according to EN 15934. This method applies to the determination of loss on ignition of sediment, sludge, treated biowaste, soil and waste. NOTE The loss on ignition is often used as an estimate for the content of organic matter in the sample. Inorganic substances or decomposition products (e.g. H2O, CO2, SO2, O2) are released or absorbed and some inorganic substances are volatile under the reaction conditions.

Due to the fact that recently a huge amount of resources have been devoted to the topic of environmental protection and ecology, a large number of related international standards are being created accordingly. If you are engaged in activities that come into contact with the aforementioned chemical elements and their use, we recommend that you have this international standard in stock without fail.

Soil and waste - Guidance on the selection and application of screening methods (ISO 12404: 2021)

EN ISO 12404: 2021

A huge part of international standards is occupied by those documents that are not created to prescribe certain characteristics of the norms and requirements of a particular methodology, but rather are instructions for choosing the most appropriate methodology for your activity. When we talk about screening methods, a similar document is EN ISO 12404: 2021.

This document provides guidance on the selection and application of screening methods for assessing soil quality and waste characterization, including distribution of target parameters in soil and soil-like material. The aim of this document is to set up criteria as to when the different kind of screening methods can be applied for the analysis of a certain parameter in soil, including soil-like material, and waste, and which steps are required to prove their suitability .

This document does not recommend any particular screening method but confirms the principles of their selection and application.

If you are interested in making the right choice the first time with minimization of financial and temporary risks, this document will become an assistant in the implementation of your activities and you can be sure that all the norms and requirements of the international market are met by your organization.

Fertilizers - Determination of dust content

CEN / TR 14061: 2021

A certain set of chemical elements used in a particular industry has corresponding norms and requirements for operation, which is why such an extensive number of international standards are created for absolutely every category of business activity. To When it comes to certain elements related to agriculture or fertilizers, you need to understand that the variability and variety of tools used in this industry is huge and as a result, there is a need for an appropriate number of such international standards as CEN / TR 14061: 2021.

This document is applicable to crushing strength measurement as applied to grains of fertilizer obtained in prilling or wet-granulation process. Compacted or crystalline materials were not considered.

Since this international document has a certain number of clarifications, we recommend that you pay great attention to its annotation, as well as technical characteristics, which you can familiarize yourself with by clicking on the link to our website.

International standardization as a tool for scaling a business

Like any document, the international standard created for each category of education has a certain number of amendments. These amendments are created so that, with a large number of similar equipment, there are no errors in the implementation of an incorrect document, which is why you should pay great attention to the annotations given to the documents, and not only to the standard characteristics describing the possible scope of application. If you have questions about which particular international document will help you scale in the most low-risk method and increase the productivity of your business activities, you can follow the link to our website and consult a specialist absolutely free of charge who will answer all your questions and select a package of those documents that will bring your company to a new level in a fairly quick time.
