The BO 131-03 Interior Odor Test defines the process used to test the odor arising from interiors that conduct air into the main cabin compartments of Ford automobiles. The BO-131 Ford Interior Odor Test is conducted as follows:

  • The sample material is hooked onto a wire ring and suspended into a jar (with or without water)
  • The sample is exposed to one of the 4 specified conditions for the pre-determined amount of time and temperature
  • Evaluation of odor from the jar is made by a third-party assessor, using a 6-grade scale to rate the intensity, ranging from not perceptible to extremely disturbing

A test report, defining the methodology and findings, is then prepared.
