This European Standard specifies the Standard Reference Method (SRM) for sampling, and determining carbon monoxide content in ducts and stacks emitting to atmosphere. It describes the Non Dispersive Infra-Red (NDIR) analytical technique, including the sampling system and sample gas conditioning system, to determine CO in flue gases. This European Standard is the reference method for periodic monitoring and for calibration or control of Automatic Measuring Systems (AMS) permanently installed on a stack, for regulatory purposes or other purposes. To be used as the SRM, it is necessary to demonstrate that the performance characteristics of the method are lower than the performance criteria defined in this European standard and that the overall uncertainty of the method is less than ± 6 % relative at the daily Emission Limit Value (ELV).
