Soil improvers and growing media. Determination of quantity for materials with particle size greater than 60 mm (British Standard)

TThis standard specifies a method for the determination of quantity of soil improvers and growing media in bulk and in packages. This is a reference method, which is designed with an appropriate precision level aimed at enabling validation of any quantity declaration made. This document applies to material that is in solid form, but not in block form to be sold by dimension, and which exceeds the particle size restriction in EN 12580 [1] and where the declared nominal particle size is greater than 60 mm. This method is applicable for products where a mass fraction of less than 10% of material is retained on the 100 mm fall controller. NOTE 1 The requirements of this standard may differ from the national legal requirements for the declaration of quantity for the products concerned. NOTE 2 Where there is no legal requirement to use this method, for example in quantity control of packaged product, then it is permissible for any other methods to be used so long as these other methods can be demonstrated to be comparable with this standard method in giving the same quantity with the same precision.
