Overview 

 

Dear Colleagues,


We would like to invite you to participate in the European Proficiency Test in Fruits and Vegetables Screening Methods 08 (EUPT-FV-SM-08), organised by the European Union Reference Laboratory for Residues of Pesticides in Fruits and Vegetables on behalf of the European Commission, Health & Consumer Protection Directorate-General (DG-SANTE).


This EUPT is open for all National Reference Laboratories (NRLs) and all Official Laboratories (OfLs) of the EU, and furthermore it is also open for the NRLs and OfLs of the EU-candidate states and the EFTA countries.
Participation will be on a voluntary basis


The PT is also open for Official Laboratories in third countries (countries outside the EU) as long as test material is available and provided that DG-SANTE gives its consent.


The test item for the EUPT-FV-SM08 will be SPINACH homogenate containing pesticides.


The test materials, 200 g of spinach homogenate containing incurred pesticide residues, together with 200 g of 'blank' spinach homogenate, will be shipped to participants on 8th February 2016. If any laboratories have holidays in the week of the shipment, please inform the organiser to rearrange shipment as soon as possible.


The deadline fixed for result submission will be
72 hours after receiving the sample.


The evaluation of this PT will be based on qualitative information, although an estimated concentration will be requested for those pesticides that are detected, only for informative purposes. It has been decided by the Quality Control Group, and based on the received questionnaires, that a target pesticide list will not be provided.


NOTE: If your laboratory participates in the EUPT-FV-18 too, only one bottle of "blank" SPINACH homogenate will be shipped for both Proficiency Tests.


VERY IMPORTANT: The deadline for result submission to the Organiser will be 72 hours after receipt of the sample.


Please note that in some cases the documents or the dates could change, new versions updated. In this case, it will be published in our webpage and additionally an e-mail will be sent to the participants for notification. But please, check periodically our website in case the email does not get through to you.

For laboratories participating in EUPT-FV18 this PT will have no cost. For other laboratories, the sample delivery will be 250 €. Regarding payment procedures, each laboratory can specify their details and invoice requests when applying for the test.

Please, do not pay for this EUPT until we send you the invoice. Remember to include your Laboratory Code in the subject of the bank transfer.
