Welcome to the Government Chemist blog.

The blog is here to pass on information from the Government Chemist (GC) Advisory Function and any other appropriate information regarding analytical measurements in the context of  regulatory or legislative developments. It replaces the monthly updates which I have been posting for several months and is designed to be a more informal tool for disseminating information, receiving feedback and stimulating discussion and debate.

All feedback is gratefully received – let me know what you think of the blog and what type of information you’d like to see.
