07.02.2022: New PDF of the report uploaded.
The 22nd round of the interlaboratory comparison study on the determination of PCDDs/PCDFs, PCBs, and brominated flame retardants in three food items were conducted in spring of 2021. A fourth food item was designated for the determination of PFAS. The objectives were to assess the in-between laboratory reproducibility, to offer a quality assurance instrument for the participating laboratories, and to assess the readiness of expert laboratories world-wide to determine low levels of POPs in food.
