The documents for Parts 1 to 8 reached CEN Stage 49 Document available for formal vote at end
April, 2002 and were sent to CEN Management Centre for circulation for Formal Voting by CEN
member national standards bodies. They are to be processed under the Unique Acceptance Procedure
(UAP) which combines the Enquiry and Formal Voting stages.
If the Voting results give approval for the 8 Parts to become standard EN 13130 - Parts 1 to 8, and the
expected progress schedule is achieved, these Parts of the standard should be Ratified early 2003.
and publication should then follow mid 2003.
The re-drafting of the 20 test methods from the BCR Project into CEN format has been completed. It
is not intended to initially publish these test methods as Parts of the standard ENV 13130. It is
intended that they will be added to standard EN 13130 as Parts 9 to 28.
CEN Stage 40 Document available for enquiry is expected to be reached for Parts 9 to 28 early 2003,
and Stage 49 Document available for formal vote towards the end of 2003. If the Voting results give
approval for the 20 Parts to be added to standard EN 13130 and the expected progress schedule is
achieved, these Parts of the standard should be Ratified at the beginning of 2004. Implementation and
publication should then follow during the first half of 2004.
Some precision data (`r' with 2/3 laboratories) were produced for the Parts 9 to 28 test methods
during the work under the BCR Project. No collaborative trials are currently planned to produce full
`r' and `R' data for the 20 added to the Work Programme.
It is expected that future users of these Parts of the standard will establish precision and reliability
data for test results produced by means of in-house protocols, to be produced by Working Group 1
from data in the CEN/TR produced by Task Group 7.
Working Group 3
Test methods for release of lead and cadmium from ceramics
Working Group 3, which had the task of producing test methods for the release of lead and cadmium
from ceramics, completed the assigned Work Items in 1994 and an EN Standard has been published
with two parts. The number of the standard and the titles of the two parts are:
