This document specifies a system for sampling procedures for testing plastics waste and recyclates which take into account the specifics of the plastics waste and recyclates. It is intended to cover all stages of the plastic recycling process.
The sampling procedures include the statistical specifics of the plastic waste and the behaviour of recyclates.
The sampling method is expected to produce a representative testing sample. Differences can arise due to:
-   the mixture of plastics;
-   the origin (e.g. green dot in Germany, or electronic/automotive industry);
-   the previous use of the plastic material;
-   the residual contents (e.g. of containers);
-   inert, residual or moisture content on or in the material.

This Technical Specification specifies an analytical method for testing food grade, recycled polyethylene terephthalate (PET). This analytical method provides / is intended to be used as a quality control check. This test identifies and quantifies certain specified contaminants. Such contaminants are referred to as Marker Compounds.
The analytical method is applicable for use on PET samples and products at all stages in the recycling process and will therefore be useful to recycling companies producing commercial, recycled PET for food contact materials and articles, and the manufacturers of such articles.
This Technical Specification is without prejudice to any existing legislation.
NOTE   Marker compounds are known to originate from two sources:
-   from the PET material itself (i.e. residual monomers, degradation products or reaction/breakdown products);
-   from food products that the PET has contacted during its first use.
WARNING: The use of this Technical Specification may involve hazardous materials, operations and equipment.
Persons using this Technical Specification should be familiar with normal laboratory practise. This document does not purport to address all of the safety problems, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user to establish appropriate safety and health practises and to ensure compliance with any national regulatory conditions.
IMPORTANT - It is absolutely essential that tests conducted according to this Technical Specification be carried out by suitably trained staff.

This Technical Specification specifies the preparation of samples of recycled plastics prior to testing and takes account of the specifics of the material.
Sample preparation should avoid any process that causes 'de-mixing' of the sample. Following preparation, the sample should remain representative.
The behaviour of contaminants should be carefully analysed and observed to ensure this is homogeneous.
This Technical Specification does not address any legal or product safety issues.
