ISO 16000-13:2008 specifies sampling and preparation of sampling media for dioxin-like polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins (PCDDs) and polychlorinated dibenzofurans (PCDFs) in indoor air. The method incorporates a sampling procedure that collects PCBs and PCDFs/PCDDs from air on a fine-particle filter backed up by a sorbent trap. The method cannot be used to separately determine gaseous PCBs and PCDFs/PCDDs and those that are particle-associated because some of the compounds will volatilize from the filter and be collected by the sorbent trap. ISO 16000-13:2008 does not address analytical methods for PCBs, PCDDs and PCDFs, which are included in ISO 16000-14.
