This European Standard specifies procedures for obtaining a representative sample from a consignment of creosote.
This standard is only applicable to consignments of creosote which are in a single phase at the time of the sampling.
NOTE 1 At ambient temperature, part of the creosote may be in crystalline form. In such cases, it is necessary to heat the creosote to a temperature above the crystallization point of the particular creosote at which it is entirely liquid before sampling.
NOTE 2 All personnel concerned with sampling and testing should be fully acquainted with the safety precautions relating to creosote. It is essential that proper safety measures for handling hazardous materials are followed when sampling creosote.
