EN ISO 13904 - Animal feeding stuffs: Determination of tryptophan content

EN ISO 4859-2:2016 - Steels - Determination of total silicon contents: Reduced molybdosilicate spectrophotometric method - Part 2: Silicon contents between 0.01 % and 0.05 %.

EN ISO 22155:2016 - Soil quality: Gas chromatographic determination of volatile aromatic and halogenated hydrocarbons and selected ethers - Static headspace method.;

EN ISO 15009:2016 - Soil quality: Gas chromatographic determination of the content of volatile aromatic hydrocarbons, naphthalene and volatile halogenated hydrocarbons - Purge-and-trap method with thermal desorption.

CEN/TS 16916:2016 - Materials obtained from End of Life Tyres: Determination of specific requirements for sampling and determination of moisture content using the oven-dry method. This specifies a method for determining the total moisture content of materials obtained from End of Life Tyres by drying samples in an oven, and is applicable to chips, granulates, powders and textile derived from the treatment of End of Life Tyres, but is not intended for the determination of moisture content in steel wires.
