No. 8 - CORESTA Monitor Test Piece Production and Evaluation Requirements

April 2009

Monitor test pieces are used to monitor the stability of the analytical processes involved when using a cigarette smoking machine for routine analysis. In particular, they are used to assess whether the analytical process related to the machine smoking of cigarettes is in statistical control. An International Standard, ISO 16055:2003 describes the requirements for and use of a monitor test piece. This guideline gives additional details on specification, production, packaging and evaluation of a CORESTA monitor test piece.
