This European Standard specifies a procedure for the determination of appearance of ethanol by visual method. The method enables to determine colour and limpidity of ethanol.

NOTE - Automotive fuel standards require a fuel to be clear and bright, meaning absent of particles, respectively absent of haziness. For this document that requirement is combined into a limpidity requirement.
