IMEP

IRMM provides a metrological interlaboratory comparison scheme to enable the benchmarking of laboratory performance. The International Measurement Evaluation Programme (IMEP) aims to build up confidence where trade or border crossing problems exist. IMEP provides support to EU policies and the chemical measurement system of the enlarged EU assisting in the development of the national measurement systems. The common goal is to prove the reliability of measurement results. All laboratories can participate in the regular IMEPs. The IMEP-100 series are interlaboratory comparisons organised on behalf of the European Union Reference Laboratory for Heavy Metals in Feed and Food and are open for nominated national reference laboratories only.
