This European Standard specifies the minimum performance requirements in biological tests for products for curative uses against specific wood destroying organisms. It specifies the biological tests required together with the efficacy criteria to be achieved in each test. Chemicals against insects can act according to their specific properties within a short time (fast acting) or only after a long period (slow acting or with a deferred effect). Different tests and efficacy requirements are needed for these various types of curative wood preservatives. This European Standard is applicable to all wood preservative products supplied for application in liquid form for curative uses against attack by wood boring beetles. This European Standard is also applicable for products applied to prevent the growth of the dry rot fungus through masonry. This European Standard is also applicable to products for curative uses supplied for application as pastes, solids or in capsule form but only where appropriate biological methods of test exist as published European Standards or as normative annexes to this European Standard.
