This report describes the preparation of animal feed certified for its organochlorine pesticides content (CRM 115). After enrichment of an uncontaminated basic animal feed with pure pesticides dissolved in oil, the homogeneity and stability were determined with respect to the contents of organochlorine pesticides. The analytical techniques used in the certification are summarised. All individual results are reported and discussions on their analyses are made.
