Where a ceramic article does not exceed the above quantities by more than 50%, that article shall nevertheless be recognised as satisfying the requirements of these Regulations if at least three other articles with the same shape, dimensions, decoration and glaze are subjected to a test carried out under the conditions laid down in Schedule 2 and the average quantities of lead and/or cadmium extracted from those articles do not exceed the limits set, with none of those articles exceeding those limits by more than 50%.

Where a ceramic article consists of a vessel fitted with a ceramic lid, the lead and/or cadmium limit which may not be exceeded (mg/dm2 or mg/litre) shall be that which applies to the vessel alone. The vessel alone and the inner surface of the lid shall be tested separately and under the same conditions; the sum of the two lead and/or cadmium extraction levels obtained shall be related as appropriate to the surface area or the volume of the vessel alone.
