The method described in this European standard allows of the determination of
[ANALYTE] in [MATRIX]. The method is to be used in conjunction with Part 1
of EN [XXX] which describes the procedures required prior to the determination
of [ANALYTE] in [MATRIX].

The method has been validated by collaborative trial using [MATRIX] (see 8).

1.
SCOPE
This part of EN [XXX] describes a method for the determination of [ANALYTE]
in [MATRIX].

The method is appropriate for the quantitative determination of [ANALYTE] in
approximate analyte concentration range of [RANGE] [MASS]/kg [MATRIX].

2.
PRINCIPLE
The level of [ANALYTE] in [MATRIX] is determined by [TECHNIQUE].
Quantification is achieved using [STANDARD].
[CONFIRM].

3. REAGENTS
Reagents and solvents shall be of analytical quality.

5. SAMPLES
The laboratory samples of [MATRIX] to be analysed are obtained as described in PART
1 of EN [XXX]. Analyte-free samples of [MATRIX] of the same type as those to be
analysed are also required for use for calibration purposes.
