Presentations of the IsoFood Hg Training Course

The ISO-FOOD Hg Training Course “Quality assurance for Hg measurements in food and environmental samples” was organized from 25th to 27th November 2015, in Reactor Centre, Podgorica, Brinje 40, SI-1262 Dol pri Ljubljani. The photos from the training course are available in the following gallery. 


Mercury is a very hazardous substance for human health and the environment. The European legislation requires that adequate information on the presence of this element is obtained, but measuring reliably Hg contents, the Hg speciation or the Hg isotopic signature in food and environmental samples is challenging. This training course aims to provide you with the skills required to produce quality assured data.


#1 Traceability and use of CRM and RM

#2 Single laboratory validation

#3 Internal quality control

#4 Inter-laboratory comparisons

#5 Uncertainty evaluation

Experience based learning

Both theory and practice will be combined throughout the course to give you the opportunity to put the concepts learned into practice. You are encouraged to bring your own specific case studies/problems, so we can tailor the course to your specific needs.

Participants profile

The course is designed for early stage researchers (doctoral and postdoctoral level) and application scientists, i.e. from the National Reference Laboratories and the Official Control Laboratories from the EU network on ‘heavy metals’ in food and feed. A working knowledge of English is essential (written and spoken). You are requested to familiarise yourself with the ISO/IEC 17025 standard.
