Workplace air - Determination of metals and metalloids in airborne particulate matter by inductively coupled plasma atomic emission spectrometry - Part 3: Analysis (ISO 15202-3:2004, IDT)
This part of ISO 15202 specifies a procedure for the use of inductively coupled plasma atomic emission spectrometry for analysing test solutions prepared as prescribed in ISO 15202-2 from samples of airborne particulate matter collected as specified in ISO 15202-1. Method development, performance checks and a routine analysis method are specified.
This part of ISO 15202 is applicable for the assessment of workplace exposure to metals and metalloids for comparison with limit values (see e.g. EN 6891, ASTM E 13702, etc.).
The following is a non-exclusive list of metals and metalloids for which limit values have been set (see Reference 3), and for which one or more of the sample dissolution methods specified in ISO 15202-2 and the analytical procedure described in this part of ISO 15202 are applicable. However, there is no information available on the effectiveness of any of the sample dissolution methods specified in ISO 15202-2 for those elements in italics.........
