Cabinet of Ministers Regulations No 820 in 2006 (3 October. Nr. 50) of the fertilizer control sampling and preparation of the order Issued in accordance with the law of the movement of fertilisers in article 4 paragraph 2 of the first paragraph of i. General questions 1. determines the control of fertilizer sampling requirements and procedures for the national plant protection service (hereinafter service) and prepare a fertiliser quality control samples to test. 2. The terms used in the following terms: 2.1.-homogeneous possible total quantity of fertilizer from which take control samples;
2.2. initial samples — the amount of fertilizer used in one place. The original samples at random from all the parties, and they are roughly the same size;
2.3. the combined (aggregate) — a lot of the original sample sample combination;
2.4. the final sample: a sample of the combined (aggregate) representative. The final sample is obtained, thoroughly mix the sample (aggregate) and, if necessary, reducing the aggregate sample the original mass. 3. With the exception of 20, 21, 22, 23 and 24 shall not apply to fertilizers with the marking "EC fertiliser", which samples taken in accordance with the European Parliament and of the Council of 13 October 2003 Regulation (EC) No 2003/2003 relating to fertilisers (hereinafter Regulation No 2003/2003) of annex 4. II. Sampling devices 4. sampling device is made of a material which cannot affect the quality of the sample taken for testing characteristics of the, and what may be resterilized the samples that require microbiological testing. 5. This material and solid fertilizer sampling uses the following: 5.1 for manual sample uses the flat pans with steep edges or sampling probe with a long split or compartments, the probe and the size of the slits correspond to test the grain size distribution of fertilizer composition and packaging sizes;
5.2. mechanical sampling from fertilizer feeds can use mechanical devices;
5.3. sample divisions equal parts and the preparation of the final sample, you can use a special sample-sharing device. 6. Liquid fertilizer sampling uses the following equipment: 6.1. manual sampling exercise using a pipette, Cup, bottle, beaker or other device;
6.2. mechanical sampling of flow of fluid fertilizers may be used in mechanical devices. III. sample quantity requirements 7. Original minimum number of samples to be determined having regard to the type of fertilizer, the lot size and the weight of the packaging (annex 1). 8. From the original samples form the aggregate sample (in aggregate), taking into account the combined minimum weight of the sample (annex 2). 9. From the sample (aggregate) form the final sample, taking into account the minimum final sample mass (annex 3) and, if necessary, reducing the combined sample. IV. Sampling and preparation of samples having 10 and draw up as soon as possible, taking the necessary precautions to ensure the conformity of the sample of fertilizer. The sampling time prevents contamination of the fertilizer. 11. sampling equipment, surfaces and containers provided the samples are clean and dry. 12. Liquid fertilizer before sampling the mix throughout its volume. If this is not possible, sampling lot during loading or unloading. 13. sampling device with which the bacteriological analyses of samples of organic and organominerāl fertilizers, are sterile (for example, treated with 70-80% alcohol solution, if they are made of plastic, glass or metal, or treated with flame or boiling when they are made of metal). 14. in view of the initial sample of fertilisers in bulk or packaged fertilizers and liming materials, the packaging of which is greater than 100 kg, sample lot visually divided into approximately equal parts, which corresponds to the number of the original sample (annex 1), and at random from each of the following parts of having at least one original sample. If the taking of samples, it is not possible to take samples from all parts of the party, the party of the sample during loading or unloading. In this case, samples shall be taken at random from selected parts established in advance, when the model is in motion. 15. Taking a sample from the packed and organominerāl organic fertilizers or fertilizer and liming materials, packaging is 100 kg or less, the number of packages selected in accordance with the provisions of annex 1. 16. If the final sample extraction required to reduce the combined sample (aggregate), its mass reduced by a motor dealer or at kvartēšan (quartering) methods to this provision in annex 3 masses. From the sample (aggregate) prepare three final samples. 17. Final samples placed in a clean, dry, moisture-proof, airtight resealable bag, where you can save the model to its original position. The final samples for: ammonium nitrate 17.1. test of resistance to detonation test stored from 0 ° c to 25 ° c;
17.2. microbiological analyses stored in 5 ° c (± 3 ° c) temperature. 18. Final samples are weighed, labeled and sealed (sealed) so that they cannot be opened without damaging the seal (seal). 19. for each fertilizer sampling sampling shall be drawn up by the Services Act (annex 4). 20. A fertilizer with the marking "EC fertiliser" sampling provisions shall be drawn up in accordance with Regulation No 2003/2003, annex 4, paragraph 8 (A) of section (annex 4). 21. These rules 19 and 20 of that Act shall be drawn up in duplicate. One copy remains in service, the other for the person, to which the control sample of fertilizer. V. with the final steps for the sample 22. Service with the final samples: 22.1. one final sample is three days after the sample sent to the accredited laboratory testing (analysis);
22.2. the other end of the store to sample test (analysis);
22.3. the third set of the final sample to the sampling provisions leave the person at which the control sample of fertilizer. 23. If the test results confirms the conformity of the quality of the fertilizer requirements and identification of permissible deviations from the declared quality and final sample does not exceed the maximum of undesirable impurities levels in accordance with the laws and regulations on the identification of the fertilizers and the quality requirements for conformity assessment, the Department scrapped the second final samples. 24. If the testing (analyzing) is found in fertilizer quality and identification of non-compliance with quality requirements for conformity assessment, service second final samples sent to a laboratory accredited to perform repeated testing.
