Participants of the training workshops should be able to disseminate the information and knowledge gained to colleagues working in other official monitoring and surveillance laboratories in their countries.

The Workshop was jointly organized by the CRLs for Pesticide Residue Analysis

and took place on the 6th and 7th of December 2006 at the facilities of the CRL for Single Residue Methods near Stuttgart/Germany.
