NotesThis standard is withdrawn as it is no longer in use. As BS 5438:1989 is frequently confused with the 1976 dated version required by UK legislation, and the test has been superseded by BS EN ISO 6941:2003, the responsible BSI Technical Committee agreed to withdraw this standard in the 2013 Systematic Review.
