Guidelines for assessing the adverse environmental impact of fire effluents — Part 3: Sampling and analysis
|Publication Date:||1 February 2021|
|ICS Code (Protection against fire in general):||13.220.01|
This document is applicable to the sampling and analysis of effluents produced during unwanted fires that specifically have the potential to cause harm through environmental contamination. It provides additional requirements to those standards already published by ISO TC 92/SC3 for sampling and analysis of fire effluents from experimental fires and standard tests, specifically as best practice from previously published methodologies. This document does not include pollutant screening of exposed humans or animals.
The principle requirement for the sampling and analysis of effluents from fires, that may result in environmental contamination, is therefore to provide information on:
• The nature and concentrations of airborne effluents over time and distance.
• The nature and concentrations of solid and liquid ground contaminants and "run-off" compounds from firefighting operations over time and distance.
This document is principally intended for use by the following parties: environmental regulatory authorities and public health authorities, fire investigators and property owners.
This document is intended to be used together with ISO 26367-1 and ISO 26367-2 in assessments of environmental impact of fire effluents.
