Proficiency Testing on the digestion method to detect Trichinella larvae in meat intended for human consumption according to Regulation (EU) 2015/1375: aim, instructions and procedure

The EURLP organizes Proficiency Testing (PT) on the digestion method to detect Trichinella larvae in meat intended for human consumption according to the Regulation (EU) 2015/1375, for laboratories performing official controls for foodborne parasites on food and feed. On May 2014, the EURLP was accredited by ACCREDIA, the italian accreditation body, as PT Provider (PTP), in conformity with the ISO/IEC 17043:2010 international standard.
To participate to the PT schemes planned by EURLP, laboratories have to send a request by e-mail to the EURLP Director edoardo.pozio@iss.it), who will send to the admitted laboratories an user id and a password to login to the restricted area of this web site.
Purpose: to test a panel of minced meat samples (positive and negative for Trichinella spiralis larvae) by one of the approved digestion methods according to the Regulation (EU) 2015/1375, in order to assess the laboratory competence.
Procedure: the participants receive a panel of minced meat samples to be analysed, including both positive and negative samples for Trichinella spiralis larvae. The package is delivered to the laboratory within 2-3 or more working days, according to the country and locality of destination.
The samples have to be tested within 3 days after delivery of the package by one of the approved digestion methods according to the Regulation (EU) 2015/1375, and the test results have to be submitted before the indicated deadline.
Detailed instructions on the PT procedure are reported in the "restricted area" of this section, where the participant laboratories have to login in order to get their individual code, submit their results and receive the final report on their performance. Any changes in the PT schedule and/or in their planning/management, will be published in the EURLP web site.
PT report: each laboratory will receive the proficiency testing report, including an evaluation of its performance, after the submission of the test results. The final comprehensive report is presented during the annual NRL workshop and published on the EURLP web site.
