The EU-RL for Dioxins and PCBs in Feed and Food organizes a proficiency test (PT) on the determination of PCDD/Fs, dioxin-like PCBs and Indicator PCBs in the mineral feed additive sepiolite to be performed between February and April 2014.
The objective is to assess analytical performance of laboratories and the interlaboratory comparability of results from all relevant parameters (17 PCDD/Fs, 12 dioxin-like PCBs and 6 inidcator PCBs) in feed additive belonging to the functional group of binders and anit-caking agents, espcially focusing on the extraction methods applied.
Regarding the extraction of feed additives of mineral origin refer to the recommendation for extraction procedures in feedingstuff.
This PT is open for
- National Reference Laboratories (NRLs) of EU member states
- Official Laboratories (OFLs) of EU member states
- Other official and commercial laboratories
The participation of NRLs of EU member states is free of charge, other participants will be charged a fee for participation.
Further information on this proficiency test can be found in the announcement:
