Soil quality - Sampling - Part 105: Packaging, transport, storage and preservation of samples
|Publication Date:||1 January 2017|
|ICS Code (Examination of soils in general):||13.080.05|
This document establishes general principles for packing, preservation, transport and delivery of samples of soil and related materials with an emphasis on requirements for when chemical analysis of the samples is required, but with the intention that the general procedures are to be adapted as appropriate when other forms of testing are required (e.g. biological testing, physical tests on disturbed or undisturbed samples). Special procedures for specific sampling purposes are given in other parts of ISO 18400 (see also 7.2).
This document is intended to be read in conjunction with ISO 18512.
