Sensory analysis -- General guidance for the design of test rooms
This standard was last reviewed and confirmed in 2011. Therefore this version remains current.
ISO 8589:2007 provides general guidance for the design of test rooms intended for the sensory analysis of products.
It describes the requirements to set up a test room comprising a testing area, a preparation area, and an office, specifying those that are essential or those that are merely desirable.
ISO 8589:2007 is not specific for any product or test type.
Although many of the general principles are similar, ISO 8589:2007 does not address test facilities for the specialized examination of products in inspection or in-plant quality-control applications.
