2 months ago

This proficiency test (PT) on the determination of PCDD/Fs, PCBs, PBDEs, HBCDDs and PFASs in milk powder is organized by the EURL for halogenated POPs in Feed and Food to be performed between February and April 2023. The objective is to assess analytical performance of laboratories and inter-laboratory comparability of results from analyses of PCDD/Fs, PCBs, PBDEs, HBCDDs and PFASs in one sample of milk powder. 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 2023. NRLs are invited to encourage the participation of Official Laboratories (OFLs) from their member states 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. Official laboratories and commercial laboratories performing the analysis of samples taken by food business operators are invited to participate in this interlaboratory study.
