In February 2001, DG Environment and the JRC organised a technical workshop on "Harmonisation of analytical methods of sampling and analysis methods for heavy metals, organic pollutants and pathogens in soil and sludge". The workshop was attended by 48 experts from 14 member states from the EU. The reason for this workshop was the revision of the Sewage Sludge Directive 86/278/EEC. In the working document for the revision of the directive it is proposed that the investigations should follow internationally accepted standards, which should by CEN or ISO or national standards.

This booklet contains the programme of the workshop, the presentations made over the two days and the results of the discussions in the different working groups.
