Title: IMEP-28: Total Arsenic, Cadmium, Lead and Mercury in Food Supplements
Published: October 30, 2009
Abstract: The Institute for Reference Materials and Measurements (IRMM) of the Joint Research Centre (JRC), a Directorate-General of the European Commission, operates the International Measurement Evaluation Programme IMEP. It organises interlaboratory comparisons (ILC's) in support to EU policies. This report presents the results of an ILC which focussed on the determination of total As, Cd, Pb and Hg in food supplements relying on Commission Regulations 333/2007 and 1881/2006.
