The method described herein is designed to determine the disinfectant activity of processes used in hospital, medical, pharmaceutical and cosmetics, veterinary, industrial and food processing areas. The product trialled is designed to be diffused as gaseous molecules or solid or liquid-form dispersants. NOTE Concerning automatic disinfectant processes: the limits to use, especially in terms of ability to diffuse throughout the room (min and max effective volumes), shall be specified and stated in the test report; certain automatic disinfection processes are only suitable for use in large-volume spaces well in excess of 150 m3. Under these conditions, the systems cannot be tested in indoor spaces less than 150 m3 due to the high power of the jet spray; "additional experimental conditions" (see 5.5.1.1.f) should therefore be used and the tests should only be performed in test rooms with volumes different to the obligatory conditions.

This document specifies the requirements for portable locating leak detectors and fixed gas detectors for all refrigerants. Locating detectors used in factories for manufacturing processes are not included in the Scope of prEN 14624. 1.1 Product application: This document applies to different applications and environments such as plant and machine rooms, production rooms, cold rooms, supermarkets, occupied spaces like offices and hotels. 1.2 Product performance: This document specifies minimum requirements for sensitivity, operating range, response time, environmental conditions and cross sensitivity from interference gases. 1.3 Product installation: This document gives guidance of suitable technology, location of detection points, interconnection with secondary equipment (e.g. initiation of mechanical ventilation, personnel warning, equipment shutdown). 1.4 Service and maintenance: This document gives guidance for service and maintenance: Sensors and mechanical equipment have a limited operating life and require regular performance verification to ensure conformity.

This European Standard specifies the minimum performance requirements in biological tests for products for curative uses against specific wood destroying organisms. It specifies the biological tests required together with the efficacy criteria to be achieved in each test. Chemicals against insects can act according to their specific properties within a short time (fast acting) or only after a long period (slow acting or with a deferred effect). Different tests and efficacy requirements are needed for these various types of curative wood preservatives. This European Standard is applicable to all wood preservative products supplied for application in liquid form for curative uses against attack by wood boring beetles. This European Standard is also applicable for products applied to prevent the growth of the dry rot fungus through masonry. This European Standard is also applicable to products for curative uses supplied for application as pastes, solids or in capsule form but only where appropriate biological methods of test exist as published European Standards or as normative annexes to this European Standard. NOTE 1 For re-testing after making variations in product formulation, guidance is given in Annex A. NOTE 2 This standard is used as a reference document for the evaluation of efficacy of biocidal products PT8 (wood preservatives) in the framework of the European Regulation on Biocidal Products (EU) No 528/2012 (BPR). This European Standard is not applicable to products used as fumigants. This European Standard is also not applicable for determining whether specific curative products, used alone or in combination, are effective in conferring long-term protection against attack by wood destroying organisms. Preventive effectiveness can be determined using EN 599-1 but only for products that can be tested using the methods and interpretative procedures defined in EN 599-1. Annex A (informative) contains a guidance on re-testing after making variations in product formulation. Annex B (informative) contains some test recommendations for specific curative products against other insect species than Hylotrupes bajulus and Anobium punctatum. Annex C (informative) contains a guidance for physical chemical properties.

This European Standard sets requirements for bio-based surfactants in terms of properties, limits, application classes and test methods. It lays down the characteristics and details for assessment of bio-based surfactants as to whether they: - are fit for purpose in terms of performance related properties; - comply with the requirements regarding the health, safety and environment which apply to general surfactants; - are derived from a certain minimum percentage of biomass; and - comply with at least similar sustainability criteria as comparable (non-bio-based) surfactants. The criteria of the regulation on Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) [11] also apply to bio-based surfactants. NOTE EN 16575 defines the term "bio-based" as derived from biomass and clarifies that "bio-based" does not imply "biodegradable". In addition, "biodegradable" does not necessarily imply the use of "bio-based" material.
