Titled as Agricultural food products—Layout for a standard method of sampling from a lot, the document provides a rule-based guidance on drafting a sampling method of agricultural food products for intended users. Except for milk products which :1997 covers, the typical examples of the standards regulated by this document are
- -1:1991 Meat and meat products—Sampling and preparation of test samples—Part 1: Sampling
- :2002 Instant coffee—Sampling method for bulk units with liners
- :1999 Cereals, pulses and milled products—Sampling of static batches (bulk grain with a depth of 3 m)
- :2002 Flowing cereals and milled cereal products—Automatic sampling by mechanical means (bulk grain with a depth between 3–12 m)
The process of sampling is an important factor that determines a final result of an analyte, and therefore ISO 17025 uses it as one of the criteria for laboratory accreditation. The ISO 7002 has been commented by many users ever since its release
