Handling and Packaging of Materials and Components for Emissions Testing
This standard is intended for the automotive industry. Testing methods may specifically define the handling and packaging conditions for the material to be analyzed. In these cases, follow the method as closely as possible. Use this standard as a guide, where the protocol for handling and packaging the samples between part production and testing may be undefined.
Many emissions testing procedures are in use for automotive interior materials, developed by OEMs as well as industry and government organizations. Terminology and the degree of detail in these testing protocols varies widely, particularly in regard to sample handling and packaging.
