    1. Scope

    1.1 This practice covers sampling of liquids including oils, silicones, hydraulic liquid, synthetic liquids, and natural ester liquids. 1.2 Representative samples of liquids are taken for test specimens so that the quality pertinent to their use may be determined. The quality in different portions of a given container or the average quality of the whole bulk may be ascertained if desired. 1.3 Properly contain, package, and dispose of any liquid or material resulting from the use of this practice in a manner that is in accordance with local, state, and other applicable regulations specific to the country in which the samples are taken. 1.4 The values stated in SI units are regarded as the standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard. 1.5 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
