This Final Draft International Standard is an up to 6 weeks' pre-release of the official publication. It is available for sale during its voting period: 2021-04-30 to 2021-06-11. By purchasing this FDIS now, you will automatically receive, in addition, the final publication.

IEC 62321-9:2021 specifies two techniques for the determination of hexabromocyclododecane (HBCDD) in polymers of electrotechnical products.
The gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) test method is described in the normative part of this document. The GC-MS method is suitable for the determination of hexabromocyclododecane (HBCDD).
A method using high-pressure liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (HPLC-MS) is given.
These test methods have been evaluated for use with EPS (expanded polystyrene foam), XPS (extruded polystyrene foam) and ABS (acrylonitrile butadiene styrene) within the concentration ranges as specified. The use of this method for other types of materials or concentration ranges outside those specified below has not been evaluated.
This document has the status of a horizontal standard in accordance with IEC Guide 108.
