Standard Specification for Design and Construction of Composition or Quality Constituent Measuring Devices or Systems


1.1 This specification covers the requirements for design and construction of evaluation devices or systems for measuring composition or quality constituents of live animals, livestock and poultry carcasses, and individual cuts of meat, or a combination thereof. Examples include, but are not limited, to half and whole carcasses, primals, subprimals, and boxed meat.

1.2 The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard.

1.3 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, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

1.4 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
