SUBJECT COMMENT
Dioxins and Furans- In addition to the analysis of PCDD/F and PCB, we analyze other Pollutants of Interest (like PBDE, PBBE) in a variety of matrices. - The Laboratory of Dioxins is the Spanish delegate (on behalf of AENOR) on the development of the new edition of the European Norm EN1948 (“Stationary source emissions. Determination of the mass concentration of PCDDs/PCFs”), which will include the determination of DL-PCB. We are too involved in the validation of this norm. - The Spanish Ministry of Environment, has charged the Laboratory of Dioxins, together with the CIEMAT (Research Centre for Energy, Environment and Technology, Ministry of Education and Science), for the development of the National Inventory of Dioxins and Furans.
