ISO standards

There are several ISO standards that may be specific to bulk sampling or sampling methods in general. Some of them might include:

  1. ISO 3082:2009: This standard is specific to the sampling of iron ore and provides detailed procedures for the sampling, preparation and analysis of iron ore samples.
  2. ISO 5667-6:2014: This standard deals with the sampling of solid materials, including bulk solids, and may provide guidance on the design and execution of sampling procedures and on the storage and handling of samples.
  3. ISO 13528:2015: This standard deals with statistical methods for use in interlaboratory comparative testing and may be useful in the performance and evaluation of sampling procedures.
  4. ISO/IEC 17025:2017: This standard specifies the general requirements for the competence of testing and calibration laboratories and is relevant for laboratories performing sampling and analysis of bulk solids.

It is important to note that the specific standards relevant to bulk sampling may depend on the type of bulk material and the specific objectives and requirements of sampling. Therefore, it is important to consult a qualified expert or consultant when planning and executing sampling procedures to ensure that all relevant standards and best practices are followed.
