ISO 7002

Titled as Agricultural food products—Layout for a standard method of sampling from a lot, the document provides a rule-based guidance on drafting a sampling method of agricultural food products for intended users. Except for milk products which ISO 707:1997 covers, the typical examples of the standards regulated by this document are

  • ISO 3100-1:1991 Meat and meat products—Sampling and preparation of test samples—Part 1: Sampling
  • ISO 6670:2002 Instant coffee—Sampling method for bulk units with liners
  • ISO 13690:1999 Cereals, pulses and milled products—Sampling of static batches (bulk grain with a depth of 3 m)
  • ISO 6644:2002 Flowing cereals and milled cereal products—Automatic sampling by mechanical means (bulk grain with a depth between 3–12 m)

The process of sampling is an important factor that determines a final result of an analyte, and therefore ISO 17025 uses it as one of the criteria for laboratory accreditation.[1] The ISO 7002 has been commented by many users ever since its release [2][3][4][5]
