Methods of Analysis and Sampling of Food Products
The 15th Inter-Agency Meeting (IAM) of international organizations working in the field of food product analysis and sampling and associated quality assurance measures was held in Budapest, Hungary, in November 2002. The aim of the IAM is to promote cooperation among organizations working in this sector and to support the needs of the Codex Alimentarius Commission. The IAM provides a unique opportunity for these organizations to discuss common problems and to harmonize their approaches.
Among the major subjects discussed at the meeting were the following:
review of actions taken by Codex in response to the results of the 14th IAM meeting and other actions by Codex affecting IAM
discussion of IAM’s role and involvement in issues relating to quality assurance in food analysis
effects of proficiency testing
the AOAC project on developing an electronic compendium of analytical methods
A report on the meeting by Dr. A. Fajgelj, IUPAC representative, can be read online at the link below.
