As EU Reference Laboratory for Pesticide Residues in Cereals and Feeding stuff, the National Institute is organising the annual EU proficiency test on behalf of the European Commission, Health & Consumer Protection Directorate-General (DG-Sanco). The proficiency test is also open to laboratories in countries outside the EU, as long as test material is available.
The EURL proficiency test is the only one on the market with incurred pesticides and a compiled list of pesticides to be analysed that covers more than 100 pesticides, isomers and degradation products.
The test material consists of rice, barly, wheat, oats or other cereal with incurred and spiked pesticides.
The next proficiency test will take place in April 2017.
Please do not hesitate to contact us, if you have any questions or want to sign up for the proficiency test.
