    The objective of this workshop is to impart knowledge about statistical evaluation of cylinder test data and their interpretation with respect to safety assessment. Essentials, which will be introduced and elaborated, are:

    - Influence of test parameters on test results including scatter from non-controlled test parameters

    - basics about degradation investigated by cycle and burst testing

    - basics of statistics and its use in evaluation of test data

    - basics of safety assessment by using statistics.

    On November 14, 2014 the European Union Reference Laboratory for Feed Additives (EURL-FA) celebrates its 10th anniversary with colleagues from DG Health and Consumers of the European Commission, the European Food Safety Authority, the National Reference Laboratories and industry representatives. A review of the activities during the last 10 years will be presented and feedback from all main stakeholders will be given. The event will also give the opportunity to exchange views and expectations on the activities of the EURL-FA in the future, from a policy support perspective.

    The European Union Reference Laboratory for Feed Additives (EURL-FA) hosted at the Joint Research Centre (JRC) of the European Commission, Institute for Reference Materials and Measurements (IRMM) in Geel is composed of two branches, which are the EURL-FA Authorisation and the EURL-FA Control. The EURL-FA is supported for these two tasks by two networks of National Reference Laboratories (NRLs). The organisation of the workshop foresees that the two networks have separate sessions to address the topics that are specific to their remit, but also joint sessions to discuss issues that both networks have in common.
