Description

Determination of PFASs in fish

The IMEP-42 exercise focuses on the analysis of perfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs) in fish. This PT is organised in support to the EU Water Framework Directive and the Commission Recommendation on the monitoring of perfluoroalkylated substances in food.

IMEP-42 is open to all laboratories having experience in this kind of analyses.

The cost of this interlaboratory comparison is EUR 355 per registration.

Test items and analytes

The test item to be analysed is a fish paste sample. Each participant will receive 1 sample. The measurands are linear perfluorooctane sulfonate (L-PFOS), perfluorodecanoic acid (PFDA), perfluoroundecanoic acid (PFUnDA), perfluorododecanoic acid (PFDoDA), branched perfluorooctane sulfonate (br-PFOS), total perfluorooctane sulfonate (tot-PFOS), perfluorooctane sulphonamide (FOSA), perfluorononanoic acid (PFNA), perfluorotridecanoic acid (PFTrDA), perfluorotetradecanoic acid (PFTeDA) and perfluorohexanesulfonate (PFHxS) in a fish paste.

General outline of the exercise

Participants are requested to perform 1 – 3 independent analyses using the method of their choice, and to report the mean, its expanded uncertainty and coverage factor k. Detailed instructions will be sent together with the sample.
