This specification covers the biological quality specifications or requirements, or both, for Industry Reference Materials (IRMs) as cited in Practice D4678 and other standards. IRMs, as evaluated and referenced in Practice D4678, are vitally important to conduct product, specification, and development testing in the rubber and carbon black industries. Before a new lot of material can be accepted as an IRM, it must comply with the specifications prescribed in this specification. However, these specifications are only part of the requirements. Other requirements as given in Practice D4678 shall be met before a candidate material can be formally accepted as a biological IRM.
