The European Commission has published a list of areas where it expects to see new standard developed during 2015.
Three areas of are of specific interest for chemical measurements:
- standards for analytical methods for water pollutants and certain biological and microbiological parameters to be used in the implementation of the EU’s water framework Directive (WFD);
- validated standard methods for the monitoring of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs); and
- standards for the determination of flammability and the identification of allergenic substances in textiles
It will be interesting to see how these progress, particularly the proposal covering analytical methods in support of the Water Framework Directive where there is a clear need to develop methodology capable of accurately measuring key pollutants at the extremely low levels specified in the Quality Standards Directive.
We will keep an eye on this and provide further information as it becomes available.
