In the determination of the mass fraction of the grain fraction of less than 0.01 mm in accordance with Appendix A footnote (e), all mass flows are to be included in proportion to the mass flow rate which, during the sampling period (Z 2 and 3), is proportional to the processing and processing unit (s) (or their wet plant part). The determination of the grain fraction of less than 0.01 mm has to be carried out in accordance with ÖNORM B 4412:1974 07 01.

2.

The parameters fish toxicity, arsenic, lead, cadmium, chromium-total, iron, copper, nickel, mercury, zinc, tin, ammonium, fluoride, nitrate, phosphorus-total, COD, AOX, hydrocarbon index and phenol index of annexes A to H are available on the basis of a the quantity-proportional, non-deposited homogenized daily mixing sample.

3.

The parameters temperature, filterable substances, pH value, chromium VI, cyanide readily releasable, nitrite and sulphite of the plants A to H are to be determined on a random basis. The daily frequency and intervals of the sampling shall be determined as a function of the drainage behaviour of the waste water constituents (properties); concentrations and rates shall be determined in proportion to the quantity.

4.

In the determination of the content of filterable substances in the water of a surface water according to footnote (d) of Appendix A and in accordance with footnote c) of Annexes B to H, it is appropriate to proceed in accordance with Z 3. For the quantity-proportional determination, those surface water quantities are determined which are taken from the sampling time points. For the treatment of the water taken from the surface water, the sampling shall be carried out at the end of the water treatment plant.

5.

The emission limits of the parameters fish toxicity, filtratable substances, arsenic, lead, cadmium, chromium-total, copper, nickel, mercury, zinc, tin, phosphorus-total, COD, AOX, hydrocarbon index and phenol index of the plants A to H is on total content. The emission limits of the parameter iron of the plants A to H relate to the content of filtered samples (membrane filtration 0.45 μm).

6.

The emission limits of the phosphorus-total parameter of the plants A to H are based on the following or equivalent analytical method. For the parameter phosphorus-total of Annexes A to H, an analysis method shall be considered equivalent if its limit of determination is less than the emission limit.
