This proficiency test (PT) on the determination of PCDD/Fs, PCBs, PBDEs, HBCDDs, PFASs and CPs in pork liver is organized by the EURL for halogenated POPs in Feed and Food to be performed between February and April 2022. The objective is to assess analytical performance of laboratories and the inter-laboratory comparability of results from analyses of PCDD/Fs, PCBs, PBDEs, HBCDDs, PFASs and CPs in one sample of pork liver.
Announcement PT 2201-PL

National Reference Laboratories (NRLs) for halogenated POPs in Feed and Food from EU member states are requested to participate as part of their work programme for 2022. NRLs are encouraged to inform OFLs in their member states to participate as part of their duties following Article 101 of regulation (EU) 2017/625 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 15 March 2017. Furthermore, participation of OFLs will allow the extension of the data basis for calculation of assigned values and evaluation of results. A coordination of the participation of OFLs through NRLs is required. The EURL will send the samples only to the NRLs, including the samples for the OFLs in the respective member state, if applicable.
Other official laboratories and commercial laboratories performing official control or self-control of food business operators are also invited to participate in this PT in order to check the comparability of results not only within the EURL/NRL/OFL network, but also with official and private laboratories.
Deadline for registration is 21 January 2022.
