Organization: NEN
Publication Date: 1 July 2005
Status: active
Page Count: 24
ICS Code (Examination of biological properties of water): 13.060.70
scope:

Specifies a method, by analysis of inorganic carbon, for the evaluation in an aqueous medium of the ultimate aerobic biodegradability of organic substances at a given concentration of microorganisms. Is applicable to organic compounds which are: a) water-soluble under the test conditions; b) poorly water-soluble under the test conditions, in which case special measures may be necessary to achieve a good dispersion of the compound; c) volatile; d) not inhibitory to the test microorganisms at the concentration chosen for the test.
