Abstract Synopsis: ISO, IUPAC and AOAC INTERNATIONAL have co-operated to produce agreed protocols or guidelines on the "Design, Conduct and Interpretation of Method Performance Studies" [1] on the "Proficiency Testing of (Chemical) Analytical Laboratories" [2] and on "Internal Quality Control in Analytical Chemistry Laboratories" [3]. The Working Group that produced these protocols/guidelines was asked to prepare guidelines on the use of recovery information in analytical measurement. Such…

Compliance decision criteria—problems encountered and actions taken in the EU and Codex
It is now recognised that there is an intimate relationship between the final analytical result and the sampling, the measurement uncertainty and the recovery factor used to obtain that result.
Using uncertainty functions to predict and specify the performance of analytical methods
TLDR
This paper proposes replacing the traditional features of analytical performance, namely accuracy, applicability, detection limit and limit of determination, linearity, precision, recovery, selectivity and sensitivity, with a single specification, the uncertainty function, which tells us how the uncertainty varies with concentration.
A fitness for purpose approach to validation and verification of analytical measurements
TLDR
Formal new definitions of basic and complementary meetrological characteristics are given in order to properly understand the concepts of metrological requirements (MRs), verification and validation, and how they should be applied in practice.
What is the best way to ensure that valid analytical methods are used for food control
TLDR
This paper examines the utility and ease of application of a number of approaches that can be used to ensure that valid analytical methods are used for food control, including the use of standard methods, theUse of analytical criteria that describe the performance of a method, and consideration of fitness for purpose based on measurement uncertainty.

Perspective. Sense and traceability
TLDR
The present paper argues against this view, maintaining the position that most chemical measurements are traceable neither to the mole nor the kilogramme, but simply to the material used for calibration and (sometimes) to the analytical method.
