Influence of materials on water intended for human consumption - GC-MS identification of water leachable organic substances

Status: Valid

This European Standard describes a method for detecting and identifying organic chemicals that are amenable to GC-MS analysis using the procedures described and which can migrate from a product into water intended for human consumption. This European Standard does not provide all the necessary tools to completely identify all the substances that are detected. A method of semi-quantitatively estimating the concentrations of the organic substances detected is also provided, however, concentrations should only be seen as indicative. NOTE The method to be used for the preparation of migration waters is specified by separate EN's, as noted below.
