    Withdrawn Rationale:

    This guide covered common techniques for obtaining representative subsamples from a sample received at a laboratory for analysis.

    Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee D34 on Waste Management, this guide was withdrawn in October 2018. This standard is being withdrawn without replacement due to its limited use by industry.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This guide covers common techniques for obtaining representative subsamples from a sample received at a laboratory for analysis. These samples may include solids, sludges, liquids, or multilayered liquids (with or without solids).

    1.2 The procedures and techniques discussed in this guide depend upon the sample matrix, the type of sample preparation and analysis performed, the characteristic(s) of interest, and the project specific instructions or data quality objectives.

    1.3 This guide includes several sample homogenization techniques, including mixing and grinding, as well as information on how to obtain a specimen or split laboratory samples.

    1.4 This guide does not apply to air or gas sampling.

    1.5 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.

    1.6 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.
