EUPT-SRM7 - Announcement / Invitation

Dear Colleagues,

We herewith cordially invite you to participate in the upcoming European Proficiency Test on the determination of pesticide residues using single residue methods (EUPT-SRM7). This test is organised by the EU Reference Laboratory for pesticides requiring Single Residue Methods (EURL-SRM).

The test material for EUPT-SRM7 is DRIED LENTILS.

Ca. 400 g of treated and ca. 400 g of a blank test material will be delivered to each participating lab.
As the amount of available material is limited, additional material can be delivered to the laboratories only in exceptional cases and only if sufficient explanations are given by the requesting laboratory. No additional material will be provided to be used for purposes not relevant to the current EUPT.

For request of double amount of material (800 g Test Material and 800 g Blank) please contact EUPT-SRM@cvuas.bwl.de.


Participation in the EUPT-SRM7 is mandatory for:

  1. all NRLs for pesticides requiring Single Residue Methods (NRL-SRMs); according to Art. 33 of Reg. 882/2004/EC,
  2. all Official Laboratories (OfLs) undertaking pesticide residue analyses in vegetables cereals or feed within the frame of National and EU official controls (see Art. 28 of EC Reg. 396/2005).

Based on the information about he commodity scope and status in the Lab-Network Database, a tentative list of the labs obliged to participate in the EUPT-SRM7 has been distributed via our website and can be found unter List of Obliged Labs.
