Standardisation of laboratory analytical methods

Objective

SLAM is a project proposal for a supporting and coordinating activity with the objective of reviewing the needs for standardisation of CBRN analysis and suggesting a road map for its implementation. All partners to the SLAM consortium are significant players in on-going dialogues on CBRN analytical requirements and procedures on the European scene. The composition of this consortium is well-balanced as to the complementary nature of the capabilities of the partners.

SLAM will, through thorough background studies of needs and available procedures for CBRN sampling, transport and analysis review commonalities and suggest some relevant procedures. In addition, procedures particular to the so called “unknown sample”, i.e. sample with possible content of any of CBRN, will be reviewed and assessed.
Workshops for tutorial inter-calibration table top exercises and for discussion with EU 27 MS will be performed in order to widen the dialogue on standardisation.

Finally, a road-map suggesting methods of choice and processes and means to implement necessary standards to CBRN analysis will be presented and reported.
A functional standardisation of CBRN analysis at the necessary level of stringency will become an important component of a Europe more resilient to CBRN incident.
