(CRM developed into ISO 22634/1:2008)

 

This Recommended Method is applicable to the determination of B[a]P in the Total Particulate Matter (TPM) of cigarette mainstream smoke with ISO NFDPM yields between 1 and 15 mg/cigarette by GC-MS.

The described method is specified using ISO 3308 and Health Canada T-115 smoking parameters. The use of these machine smoking parameters reflects their inclusion in the reporting requirements of various national regulations rather than an endorsement of their appropriateness by CORESTA.
