This standard is Part 2 of a two part series of standards defining the technical requirements for testing the performance of water monitoring equipment. This standard defines general requirements and performance test procedures for automated measuring devices (AMD). These devices may be permanently installed or portable and are capable of making continuous real-time re measurements in water of chemicals or physical parameters.
Automated measuring devices are used extensively in the industrial process, water industries and by regulators for compliance and surveillance monitoring and process control purposes. The standard supports the Industrial Emissions Directive, Marine Directive and the Water Framework Directive.
The test parameters are performance characteristics that identify the capability of an AMD to provide reliable measurements. They include: bias, repeatability and errors caused by variations in linearity, drift, interferents, salinity compensation, output impedance, supply voltage, ambient temperature, relative humidity, incident light, sample temperature, sample flow-rate, sample pressure. The overall measurement reliability of an AMD is calculated in the form of a combined performance characteristic expressed as measurement uncertainty.

This document specifies requirements and gives guidance for performing the manipulations common
to each culture technique for the microbiological examination of water, particularly the preparation of
samples, culture media, and general apparatus and glassware, unless otherwise required in the specific
standard. It also describes the various techniques available for detection and enumeration by culture
and the criteria for determining which technique is appropriate.
This document is mainly intended for examinations for bacteria, yeasts and moulds, but some aspects
are also applicable to bacteriophages, viruses and parasites. It excludes techniques not based on
culturing microorganisms, such as polymerase chain reaction (PCR) methods.

This European Standard specifies general requirements and performance test procedures for portable and fixed position measuring devices (MDs) that are used in an in-line or online operating position to measure physical and chemical determinands in water. It excludes at-line devices, such as chemical test kits, and off-line devices, such as laboratory analysers.
The general requirements include functional facilities that MDs need to meet users’ applications and information that need to be included in associated documents.
The test procedures specify uniform methods to be used when determining key performance characteristics of MDs. The performance tests comprise testing carried out under laboratory and field conditions.
Statistical procedures are defined for evaluation of the test data. It is recognized that for some devices certain test procedures are not applicable.
Example values for performance characteristics for a selection of MDs for monitoring waste water effluents and receiving waters are detailed in Annex A for guidance.
This European Standard requires the manufacturer of a MD to provide more technical data for verification than does EN ISO 15839:2006 [5]. Consequently, EN ISO 15839 will be of greater assistance to manufacturers wishing to characterize a new device whereas this European Standard is more focussed on user requirements for the verification of manufacturer’s claims.

This part of ISO 5667 provides an audit protocol to monitor conformity with declared, or assumed,
practices in all areas of water quality sampling. Specifically, this part of ISO 5667 provides guidance on
the systematic assessment of sampling practices and procedures in the field, and assessing conformity
with those given in the organization’s sampling manual. It is applicable to the audit of sampling activities
from the development of a sampling manual through to the delivery of samples to the laboratory.
NOTE 1 The design of the sampling manual is the prerogative of the data user and this part of ISO 5667 is not
intended to deliver criticism of a manual’s structure.
This part of ISO 5667 is applicable to sampling practices associated with wastewaters, including
discharges to water bodies, environmental monitoring, potable water supplies from source to tap,
commercial and industrial uses of water, and power generation.
This part of ISO 5667 is applicable to the auditing of sampling practices relevant to the management
of water stored in containers, such as temporary supply tanks and bottled supplies. However, it is not
applicable for the auditing (or calibration and maintenance) of on-site test equipment or kits.
NOTE 2 BS 1427 covers water test kits used “in the field”.
The following sampling occasions are excluded from both the field- and desk-audit procedures set out
in this part of ISO 5667:
a) chemical and microbiological incidents, which are investigated by agencies such as the emergency
services, e.g. where an immediate risk to the health of the sampling practitioner/operative is evident;
b) radiochemical sampling of water quality, other than that specified as a routine requirement under
the UK Water Supply (Water Quality) Regulations,[9][10][11][12] i.e. radiochemical incidents which
are investigated by agencies such as the emergency services.
Informative Annex A contains a series of forms to assist with auditing. These are for guidance only.
Informative Annex B gives procedures for monitoring temperature control, while Informative Annex C
provides guidance on measuring the uncertainty associated with sampling practices.

This European Standard provides guidance on determining the degree of modification of lake hydromorphological features described in EN 16039. It enables consistent comparisons of hydromorphology between lakes within a country and between different countries in Europe, providing a method for broad based characterization across a wide spectrum of hydromorphological modification. Its primary aim is to assess ‘departure from naturalness’ for a given type of lake as a result of human pressures, and it suggests suitable sources of information that may contribute to characterizing the degree of modification of hydromorphological features. For wholly artificial lakes or reservoirs formed by damming rivers the aim is to assess the extent to which processes approximate to those in comparable natural water bodies. However, this standard does not replace methods that have been developed within particular countries for local assessment and reporting. Decisions on management for individual lakes require expert local knowledge and vary according to lake type.

This International Standard specifies methods for the estimation of measurement uncertainty of chemical and physicochemical methods in single laboratories based on validation data and analytical quality control results obtained within the field of water analysis. NOTE 1 The principles of the estimation of uncertainty specified in this International Standard are consistent with the principles described in ISO/IEC Guide 98-3. In this International Standard, the quantification of measurement uncertainty relies on performance characteristics of a measurement procedure obtained from validation and the results of internal and external quality control. NOTE 2 The approaches specified in this International Standard are mainly based on QUAM[11], NEN 7779[8], Nordtest TR 537[10], and Eurolab TR 1[9]. NOTE 3 This International Standard only addresses the evaluation of measurement uncertainty for results obtained from quantitative measurement procedures. The uncertainties associated with results obtained from qualitative procedures
are not considered.

This Technical Specification provides comprehensive guidance on within-laboratory and between-laboratory quality control for ensuring the production of results with a known level of accuracy in the analysis of waters. This Technical Specification is applicable to the chemical and physicochemical analysis of all types of waters. It is not intended for application to the analysis of sludges and sediments (although many of its general principles are applicable to such analysis) and it does not address the biological or microbiological examination of water. Whilst sampling is an important aspect, this is only briefly considered. Analytical quality control, as described in this Technical Specification, is intended for application to water analysis carried out within a quality-assurance programme. This Technical Specification does not address the detailed requirements of quality assurance for water analysis, which can be found in the EURACHEM/CITACGuide (2002) [20]. The recommendations of this Technical Specification are in agreement with the requirements of established
quality-assurance documentation (e.g. ISO/IEC 17025). This Technical Specification is applicable to the use of all analytical methods within its field of application, although its detailed recommendations may require interpretation and adaptation to deal with certain types of determinands (for example, non-specific determinands, such as suspended solids or biochemical oxygen demand, BOD). In the event of any disparity between the recommendations of this Technical Specification
and the requirements of a standard method of analysis, the requirements of the method should prevail.

This International Standard specifies methods for the estimation of measurement uncertainty of chemical and physicochemical methods in single laboratories based on validation data and analytical quality control results obtained within the field of water analysis. NOTE 1 The principles of the estimation of uncertainty specified in this International Standard are consistent with the principles described in ISO/IEC Guide 98-3. In this International Standard, the quantification of measurement uncertainty relies on performance characteristics of a measurement procedure obtained from validation and the results of internal and external quality control. NOTE 2 The approaches specified in this International Standard are mainly based on QUAM[11], NEN 7779[8], Nordtest TR 537[10], and Eurolab TR 1[9]. NOTE 3 This International Standard only addresses the evaluation of measurement uncertainty for results obtained from quantitative measurement procedures. The uncertainties associated with results obtained from qualitative procedures are not considered.

This part of ISO 5667 gives guidelines for the design, construction and installation of groundwater quality monitoring points to help ensure that representative samples of groundwater can be obtained. Within the guidance consideration is given to:
a) the impact of installation materials on the environment;
b) the impact of the installation on sample integrity;
c) the impact of the environment on the installation and the materials used in its construction.
These guidelines allow the impacts to be considered and accounted for when designing a groundwater sampling programme. They also allow an informed assessment of data and results obtained from existing installations, the construction of which can potentially have an impact on sample integrity.
These guidelines are intended for installations and monitoring in different environments including those where background or baseline groundwater conditions are being established or monitored and those in which impacts of contamination are being investigated.

This part of ISO 5667 establishes principles to be applied to the techniques of sampling water provided for drinking and for use in the manufacture of food and beverage products.
The guidance given in this part of ISO 5667 is generally confined to those circumstances where water is drawn from municipal or similar public or private abstraction, treatment or distribution systems for which prior treatment or quality assessment has resulted in the water being classified as suitable for drinking or potable process purposes. Specifically, this part of ISO 5667 is applicable to water that is supplied by tanker or other non-contiguous bulk means, but not contiguously as part of a piped distribution system, during any stage of use up to and including the point of consumption or transfer to a piped distribution system. This part of ISO 5667 is also applicable to the distribution and bulk storage of water on aircraft, trucks, trains, ships, and other vessels and vehicles, as well as to sampling situations that can arise during the investigation of system defects, initiation of new systems, re-initiation of systems that have been unused for long periods or emergency situations where the safety of sampling operatives is not compromised.
This part of ISO 5667 does not provide guidance on:
a) the sampling of source water, e.g. groundwater and impoundments;
b) the sampling of potable water supplies derived from contiguous piped supplies covered by ISO 5667-5;
c) the sampling of beverage products (including bottled waters) or food containing potable water used in its preparation;
d) the sampling of drink vending machines.

This part of ISO 5667 establishes principles, basic requirements, and illustrative methods for dealing with the use of sample data for decision making based on the assessment of the confidence that water quality:
a) meets targets and complies with thresholds;
b) has changed; and/or
c) lies in a particular grade in a classification system.
This part of ISO 5667 also specifies methods for preliminary examination of the sensitivity of decisions to error and uncertainty, although it does not cover the full range of statistical techniques. This part of ISO 5667 provides general advice on decision making related to constraint formulation for expression of thresholds and targets and the form and scale of sampling programmes. NOTE 1 In the water industry, “standard” is commonly used to indicate the value or limit of a parameter of interest. However, in this part of ISO 5667, the term “threshold” is used to avoid confusion with published national, regional, and International Standards. NOTE 2 This document is framed in terms of sampling and measurement of chemical concentrations, in particular those subject to strong day-to-day temporal variations. The principles apply, however, to any item estimated by sampling which is subject to random error, including microbiological and biological data, and data subject to strong spatial variations.
