Analytical Quality Control Services
Society’s growing interest in environmental issues requires the production of reliable information for policy-makers, stakeholders and society in general. This information must be based on accurate data produced by qualified laboratories and data need to be comparable between numerous laboratories for joint assessments, e.g. in International Conventions. The Marine Environment Laboratories of the International Atomic Energy Agency has been providing Quality Assurance services to laboratories involved in marine radioactivity studies for the past 40 years. This has included training, organization of interlaboratory comparison exercises and proficiency test, production of Reference Materials (RMs) for trace metals and organic pollutants and, more recently, production of Certified Reference Materials (CRMs) that comply with relevant ISO standards for radionuclides.
