follows:
- Delete the description of production process of ethylene glycol (see Clause 1; Clause 1 of the 2008 edition);
- Delete the technical requirements for qualified products (see Table 1; Table 1 of the 2008 edition);
- CHANGE ?€?Superior product?€? to ?€?Polyester grade?€? and ?€?First-class product?€? to ?€?Industrial grade?€? (see Table 1; Table 1 of the 2008 edition);
- CHANGE the appearance requirement of polyester grade and industrial
grade products from ?€?Colorless and transparent without mechanical
impurities?€? to ?€?Transparent liquid, without mechanical impurities?€? (see Table 1; Table 1 of the 2008 edition);

(see Table 1; Table 1 of the 2008 edition); - ADD 250 nm for the polyester grade ultraviolet transmittance with the index ?€?Report?€? (see Table 1; Table 1 of the 2008 edition);
- For polyester grade, ADD chloride ion item and test method, with the index ?€????0.5 mg/kg?€? (see Table 1 and 4.14; 5.7 of the 2008 edition);
- CHANGE the unit of measurement for items such as acidity, iron, ash
content, aldehyde content from ?€?%?€? to ?€?mg/kg?€? (see Table 1; Table 1 of the 2008 edition);
- Modify the gravimetric test requirements for the dispute of appearance visual determination results (see 4.3; 4.1 of the 2008 edition);

4.2 General provision
Unless otherwise stated, only reagents confirmed as analytically pure and Grade 3 water meeting GB/T 6682 are used in the analysis.
4.3 Determination of appearance
TAKE 50 mL~60 mL of the sample of ethylene glycol for industrial use; PLACE it in a clean and dry 100 mL colorimetric tube; under the transmission of sunlight or fluorescent lamp, visually inspect it directly.
In case of dispute, TAKE 100 g??0.5 g of sample; USE a constant-weight No. 4 glass filter crucible to suction-filter. The suction-filtration rate shall be controlled so that the filtrate is in the form of drops. USE distilled water to wash the glass filter crucible 4 times~5 times. The dosage each time is about 20 mL. Then, TRANSFER the glass filter crucible into an oven; DRY at 105 ??C??2 ??C for at least 45 min; TAKE out; COOL in a desiccator for 30 min and weigh, accurate to 0.0001 g. DRY the glass filter crucible for 30 min again; TAKE out; COOL in a desiccator for 30 min and weigh. This is repeated until the difference between the two consecutive weighs does not exceed 0.0004 g. Compared with the
glass filter crucible before filtration, when the increment is not more than 0.001 g, it is considered that there is no mechanical impurity.
4.4 Determination of ethylene glycol, diethylene glycol, 1,4-butanediol, 1,2-butanediol, 1,2-hexanediol, vinyl carbonate content

It shall be carried out according to the provisions of GB/T 7534-2004. The heat source is a 500 W electric furnace or a gas lamp. The master thermometer is a rod-shaped glass thermometer with a scale value of 150 ??C~220 ??C and a
division value of 0.1 ??C. The distance between the tip of the temperature sensing bulb and the first scale line is at least 100 mm. The 104C-75
thermometer recommended in Table 1 of GB/T 7534-2004 may also be used.
The difference between two repeated determination results, for the initial boiling point, shall be no more than 0.5 ??C, and for the dry point, shall be no more than It shall be carried out according to the provisions of GB/T 14571.5 or Appendix D. When the result is controversial, GB/T 14571.5 is used as the arbitration method.
5 Inspection rules

All index items in Table 1 are type inspection items and are exit-factory inspection items except for boiling range, density, iron content, ash content, and chloride ion. When one of the following conditions is encountered, it shall carry out the type inspection:
a) Every 3 months during normal production;
b) Key production process updates and major equipment changes;
c) The main raw materials change and affect the product quality;
d) Production resumes after suspension;
e) The exit-factory inspection result is quite different from the previous type inspection.
5.2 Lot grouping rules

It shall be carried out according to the rounded-off value comparison method of GB/T 8170-2008. If the inspection results all meet the technical requirements of Table 1 of this Standard, this lot of products is judged as qualified. If any of the indexes of the inspection results does not meet the requirements of this Standard, according to 4.1, double quantity of samples shall be re-taken for inspection. If the re-inspection result still does not meet the requirements of the product of corresponding grades specified in this Standard, this lot of products shall be judged as unqualified.

Determination of density
B.1 Density bottle method
According to the provisions of 4.3.1 of GB/T 4472-2011, USE a 50 cm3 density bottle.
The density ?? of ethylene glycol product, expressed in g/cm3, is calculated according to formula (B.1):
Where:
m1 - Mass of density bottle, in grams (g);
m2 - Mass of density bottle plus sample, in grams (g);
m3 - Mass of density bottle plus water, in grams (g);
0.0012 - The value of air density at 20 ??C, in grams per cubic centimeter (g/cm3); ??water - The value of water density at 20 ??C, in grams per cubic centimeter (g/cm3).
The arithmetic mean of two repeated determination results is taken as the analysis result. The difference between the two repeated determination results shall be no more than 0.0002 g/cm3.
B.2 U-shaped vibrograph method
It shall be determined according to Clause 6 of GB/T 2013-2010.
When the result is controversial, the density bottle method is used as the arbitration method.
