NRL Workshop

Aim of the workshop: To discuss the organisation of NRL, and the duties and requirements imposed by the current and the new Control Regulation 882 on NRL and food analyses.

To share experiences from NRL - How to fulfill the requirements and perform the tasks in an effective way? As the number of laboratories has decreased, and the scopes of the NRL are about to be widened, cooperation will be increasingly important.
