Scope of this Standard

This Standard establishes a classification system for fertilizers and soil conditioners. The classification scheme includes an explanation of the meaning of each heading and clearly assigns each fertilizer or soil conditioner to an appropriate group whilst recognizing that a few fertilizers or soil conditioners may be classified differently in some countries. The limits for nutrient contents which determine each class may be subject to national legislation. Owing to historical and legislative differences between countries, this International Standard uses, in the definitions, terms only and not chemical symbols to denote nutrients. This avoids ambiguity between the elemental or oxide forms and leaves each country free to declare nutrient contents according to national requirements.
