Abstract

Iodine deficiency remains a significant global public health challenge. Analytical measurements are therefore made routinely to assess iodine intake from food and supplements, public health status and trends. The National Institute of Standards and Technology has been working with the National Institutes of Health’s Office of Dietary Supplements for several years to develop higher-order reference methods and Standard Reference Materials which support the validation of new routine analytical methods and to provide benchmark quality assurance programs and proficiency testing.
