EURL
for Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAHs)

Network Laboratories

The EURL co-operates with a network of national reference laboratories (NRLs). The NRLs are officially nominated by the competent authorities of the EU Member States. The tasks of the NRL are listed in Regulation (EC) No 882/2004 on official controls performed to ensure the verification of compliance with feed and food law, animal health and animal welfare rules. The NRLs have tasks similar to those of the EURL e.g. to coordinate the activities of official laboratories responsible for the analysis of samples or to organise comparative tests between the official national laboratories in the Member State.
