The WK76844 - Standard Test Method for Odor and Flavor Transfer from Materials in Contact with Municipal Drinking Water is a work item revision to existing standard E2892-15 developed by Committee E18.06. This test method describes procedures for measuring odor and flavor properties of new products which may come into direct contact with municipal drinking water.
This standard was balloted for re-approval in 2020. However, there was no consensus on approving this Standard as it is from its version of 2015, so revisions will be made for a new ballot. This test method provides sample preparation procedures, methods of sensory evaluation, and a process for interpretation of results.
