Development and Validation of methods for specific analytes required in support of the Pesticide Residues Committee (PRC) Annual Surveilance Programme - PS2515

Description

„X The purpose of the research is to support the necessary ongoing development of the UK pesticides monitoring programme by providing the Pesticide Residues Committee with methodology to ensure that the programme remains up to date and more able to meet current EU legislation.


„X The Methods will be required where it is planned to include; new and recently approved pesticides, reported to be used in food production but not included in the PRC programme; and pesticide/matrix combinations that are analytically challenging. Wherever possible, the analyses will be incorporated into generic extraction based Multi-residue Methods with the development of single residue methods only pursued as a last resort.
