BS EN 12861:2018 pdf download.Copper and copper alloys – Scrap
1 Scope
This European Standard specifies the requirements for characteristics, condition, moisture, composition,metal content, metal yield and test procedures of metallic raw materials for direct melting (melting grades) in the form of copper and copper alloy scrap.
All provisions of this European Standard apply regardless of the legal status of the scrap. The respective legal requirements should be met.

3.1 scrap for direct melting
metallic raw material with levels of impurity elements which would not prohibit its use for direct melting, with or without preliminary mechanical treatment
Note 1 to entry: Examples for preliminary mechanical treatment are baling, fragmenting and crushing.
Note 2 to entry: According to the Directive 2008/98/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council on waste and to Commission Regulation (EU) No 715/2013 establishing criteria determining when copper scrap ceases to be waste, metallic raw materials may be considered as “waste” or as “by-products’ , or may have’ end-of-waste status”. Depending on its legal status metallic raw material may either be regulated by the European waste legislation or by the European chemicals legislation, notably Regulation (EC] No 1907/2006 of the European Parliament and of the Council on the Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH].
3.1.1 production scrap
clean metallic raw material arising from production processes (e.g. offcuts from casting, rolling,extrusion, forging) or from further processing
Note 1 to entry: E.g. stamping grids.
3.1.2 old scrap
metallic raw material other than material specified as“production scrap”
Note 1 to entry: See 3.1.1.
3.2 free from … (substance)
maximum quantity of substances adhering to the scrap:
一 0,005 % (mass fraction) for metallic impurities;
一 0,2 % (mass fraction) for moisture;
一0,05 % (mass fraction) for other non-metallic impurities
