Quality assurance managers as well as competent authorities have to
consider a number of aspects in making decisions on compliance with legislation  on
a national or EU level. There are many reasons for differences in  acceptance of consignments of food products and feed . This requires more information than just an analytical result. Critical issues that  will be discussed are:

  • regulatory issues and requirements
  • assessment of compliance
  • sampling and its uncertainty
  • use of different types of methods of analysis
  • quality issues in analysis and measurement uncertainty
  • data tracking and tracing as part of quality control
The symposium is intented for an audience of food and feed analysts,
quality assurance managers, administrators and academia.
