Anyone carrying out chemical measurement in support of regulation should be aware of the following standards and technical documents published by CEN during June 2015.
EN16720:2015 - Automotive fuels - Determination of high-boiling components including fatty acid methyl esters in petrol and ethanol (E85) automotive fuel - Gas chromatographic method. This method is applicable to high boiling material, such as FAME or diesel fuel, having a boiling point greater than or equal to 1-methyl-naphthalene. The standard is applicable to materials having a vapour pressure low enough to permit sampling at ambient temperature and a boiling range of at least 100 °C. This method pays special attention to fatty acid methyl esters.
EN16187:2015 - Foodstuffs - Determination of fumonisin B1 and fumonisin B2 in processed maize containing foods for infants and young children - HPLC method with immunoaffinity column clean-up and fluorescence detection after pre-column derivatisation. This method has been validated in an interlaboratory study via the analysis of both naturally contaminated and spiked samples.
EN/ISO12966 Part 4:2015 - Animal and vegetable fats and oils - Gas chromatography of fatty acid methyl esters - Part 4: Determination by capillary gas chromatography.
EN/ISO18218 Part 1:2015 - Leather - Determination of ethoxylated alkylphenols - Part 1: Direct method. Part 2 of this standard offers an indirect method.
