The EU Commission has allocated a National Food Institute as EU Reference Laboratory in dual new fields, estimate contaminants in food and metals, and nitrogenous compounds in feed and food.
”We see a appointments as a EU Commission’s approval of a veteran imagination within a margin of chemical research of food, peculiarity declaration and a ubiquitous competencies in systematic recommendation giving. We are really unapproachable of that,” Director of Institute Christine Nellemann says.
The tasks of an EU Reference Laboratory
The EU Commission has allocated a series of EU Reference Laboratories (EURLs), whose charge it is to safeguard a high methodical peculiarity in a European control system. This is finished by partnership with a inhabitant anxiety laboratories, that have been allocated by any Member State.
The EURLs are e.g. obliged for ensuring that a inhabitant anxiety laboratories use a scold methodical methods in a control of food and feed, new methodical methods are grown when necessary, and that a methodical peculiarity of a inhabitant anxiety laboratories is put to a test.
The EURLs also advise a EU on central control and methodical methods, including giving recommendation on what can be subjected to control. Last though not least, a EURLs play a pivotal purpose in a food chemistry strait complement for astonishing incidents.
On 1 Mar 2018, The National Food Institute strictly allocated EU Reference Laboratory for estimate contaminants in food (EURL-PC) and for metals and nitrogenous compounds (EURL-MN). The new anxiety laboratories will now start formulation their work programmes for a entrance year.
Four EURLs during a National Food Institute
The National Food Institute is already EU Reference Laboratory for pesticides in cereals and feeding things (EURL-CF) as good as EU Reference Laboratory for antimicrobial insurgency (EURL-AR).
Similarly, a National Food Institute is tasked with being National Reference Laboratory in a series of areas in propinquity to a Danish food authorities.
“The appointment as EU anxiety laboratories shows that a National Food Institute has a really high grade of imagination and can broach work of a really high peculiarity within a areas of methodical food chemistry and antimicrobial resistance. The institute’s imagination in these areas is drawn on – not usually in Europe though also internationally,” Christine Nellemann says.
