Laboratory comparison test "sampling of solid waste"

The Austrian Standards Institute and the Federal Environmental Agency have organised a laboratory comparison test for the sampling of solid waste.


FHA GmbH successfully undertook this test from May to September 2002.



The laboratory comparison test concentrated on the following issues:

  • Introduction of the concepts of sampling according to CEN / TC 292 / WG 1 and ÖNORM S 2123 as well as creating a sampling plan according to CEN for a sampling scenario.
  • Practical sampling according to ÖNORM S 2123-1.
