Analytical methodology currently employed for the determination of seven indicator PCBs in three compound feeds and fish meals has been evaluated by a collaborative study. The majority of the obtained relative standard deviations of the PCBs varied from 20 to 30%. By assuming a target relative standard deviation of 22% for the analytical results, the statistical evaluation showed that about 80% of the participating laboratories delivered data within an acceptable range defined by range of +/- 44% of the assigned concentration in the test materials. However, between 10 and 20% of the participating laboratories reported unacceptable results.
