Analyses of milk and milk products are routinely performed by a number of dairy laboratories to control the quality of these products with regard to nutritional components and potential exposure to toxic elements. In order to improve and control the quality of such analyses the Community Bureau of Reference (BCR) has organised series of certification campaigns to produce reference materials of milk certified for a variety of trace elements and compounds. Due to increasing demand, the stock of some of these materials is now exhausted. Consequently, the BCR decided to produce a new batch of CRM of skim milk powder certified for its contents of Ca, Cu, Cl, I, Fe, K, Mg, P, Pb, N, Na and Zn (CRM 063R). This material was carefully prepared by spray-drying and its homogeneity and long term stability were verified.
