|Publication Date:||1 November 2015|
|ICS Code (Solid fuels):||75.160.10|
This test method2covers the determination of total arsenic and selenium in coal.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.
This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
