Concern about the toxic impact of chemical species on the contamination of the environment, considering the high toxicity of a variety of compounds (such as tributylin to marine life, methyl-mercury to humans), has led to an increasing number of speciation analyses during the last few years. In order to improve the performance of speciation techniques in Europe, the Measurements and Testing programme (BCR) of the CEC has developed a series of projects consisting of intercomparisons and certification campaigns. This paper describes the organisation of these projects and their most recent achievements.
