  • ISO 16140 – Microbiology of the food chain — Method validation

  • ISO/TS 23471 – Experimental designs for evaluation of uncertainty — Use of factorial designs for determining uncertainty functions

  • ISO/TS 27878 – Reproducibility of the level of detection (LOD) of binary methods in collaborative and in-house validation studies

  • Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2021/808 of 22 March 2021 on the performance of analytical methods for residues of pharmacologically active substances used in food-producing animals and on the interpretation of results as well as on the methods to be used for sampling and repealing Decisions 2002/657/EC and 98/179/EC (Text with EEA relevance)

  • ISO 19040 – Water quality — Determination of the estrogenic potential of water and waste water

  • and many more


These contributions evolved from committee work in several national and international working groups such as ISO Technical Committees, CEN Technical Committees, Codex Alimentarius and DIN standardization committees.
