This document specifies general requirements for sampling, preservation, handling, transport and
storage of all water samples including those for biological analyses.
It is not applicable to water samples intended for microbiological analyses as specified in ISO 19458,
ecotoxicological assays, biological assays and passive sampling as specified in the scope of ISO 5667-23.
This document is particularly appropriate when spot or composite samples cannot be analysed on site
and have to be transported to a laboratory for analysis.

It is not applicable to the sampling of estuarine or coastal waters nor for microbiological sampling.
NOTE 1 Procedures for microbiological sampling are given in ISO 19458.
This part of ISO 5667 is neither applicable to the examination of sediment, suspended solids or biota, nor
to dammed stretches of rivers or streams. Also, it is not applicable to passive sampling of surface waters
(see ISO 5667‑23).
NOTE 2 In cases where naturally occurring or artificially constructed dams result in the retention or storage
of water for several days or more, the stretch of the river or stream should be considered as a standing water body.
For sampling purposes, see ISO 5667‑4.
