discussion is given of relativistic balance laws that may be used to construct models of material media with spin and electromagnetic properties, interacting with general background electromagnetic fields and gravitation described by non-Riemannian geometries. The general framework offers an approximation scheme for modelling relativistic media by supplementing the balance laws with conditions that convert them into an involutive differential system.
