International Alcohol Tables and Sugar Articles

International Alcoholmetric Tables. International Organization of Legal Metrology (French: Organization Internationale de Metrologie Legale or OIML). 

For reference the legal metrology tables known as the IAT or OIML tables can be consulted for the density and the corresponding alcohol values and are available on line. For some reason the file name is RO22e75.

The General Formula itself is published in the Official Journal of the European Community as a Council Directive of July 27th, 1976 as the method of expressing alcoholic strength by volume or by mass on page No. L 262/149.
