It does not cover cutlery made wholly of precious metals, aluminium, non stainless steel or that made entirely of nickel silver, nor does it cover gold-plated or chromium-plated cutlery. Three minimum thicknesses of silver are specified for silver-plated cutlery.
Worth mentioning is that this draft standard is technically identical with ISO 8442-2/1997 (confirmed in 2019).
