Description

This International Standard gives guidance for the determination of total carbon (TC), total inorganic carbon (TIC) and total organic carbon (TOC) in drinking water, ground water, surface water, sea water and waste water. It also defines
terms and specifies interferences, reagents, and sample pretreatment for water samples.
The method described in this International Standard applies to water samples containing organic carbon content
ranging from 0,3 mg/l to 1000 mg/l. The lower limit concentration is only applicable in special cases, for example
drinking water, measured by highly sensitive instruments. Higher concentrations may be determined after appropriate
dilution.
This International Standard does not deal with the instrument-dependent specifications.
Purgeable organic substances, such as benzene, toluene, cyclohexane and chloroform, can also be determined using
this method.
Cyanide, cyanate and particles of elemental carbon (soot), when present in the sample, can be determined together
with the organic carbon.

IMPARTIALITY AND CONFIDENTIALITY STATEMENT
The Botswana Bureau of Standards (BOBS) understands the importance of impartiality and confidentiality in carrying out its management system certification activities. BOBS management is committed to gaining and maintaining the reputation, credibility and ultimately, confidence of its stakeholders in rendering its certification services. Additionally, BOBS strives to continuously manage foreseen potential conflicts of duty and interest and ensures objectivity of its activities under the management system certification. To achieve the above, BOBS shall identify, analyse, record and manage potential conflict of duty and interest to ensure that certification services are not provided within relationships that have been identified to pose an unacceptable threat to impartiality. An Impartiality Committee shall periodically review activities of the certification function to verify commitment to credibility and fairness. The Committee shall further assist in the development of policies relating to impartiality of providing certification activities. BOBS is committed to maintaining in strict confidence all information accessed while rendering the certification services and shall ensure that such information is not divulged to third parties without the Client’s written consent unless if required by law.
Demand Quality

When things don't work as they should, it often means that standards are absent.
