  • The IRMM International Measurement Evaluation Programme (IMEP) : Monitoring the quality of chemical measurements in Europe against SI traceable values

Abstract

The Joint Research Centre (JRC) of the European Commission is a European scientific and technical research centre. The nine institutes located on five sites at Geel (Belgium), Karlsruhe (Germany), Ispra (Italy), Petten (The Netherlands) and Sevilla (Spain) perform scientific research for the EU commission, universities and private companies from EU member states.
Following the membership of the European Union, a number of research facilities have become available to Sweden and its chemists. At present, three Swedish chemists conduct research at the Institute for Reference Materials and Measurements (IRMM). Many activities at IRMM are of special interest to analytically oriented chemists.
Our purpose at Analysdagarna is to highlight the IRMM International Measurement Evaluation Programme (IMEP). The aim of IMEP is to compare results of chemical measurements against SI traceable values by displaying the State-of-the-Practice in pictures. Six rounds have been completed since the start in 1988. These involve elements at various concentration levels in serum, polyethylene and water. An overview of results and experiences from all rounds as well as information about intended future rounds will be presented. .
