    Description

    The overall objective of this European project is to provide reliable and safe methods and appropriate standards for determination of trans fatty acids in edible oils and fats.
    The background for the co-operation was the recognition of the fact that results published on trans fatty acid contents were dependening on the methods used and varied to a great extent between laboratories.
    Twelve independent laboratories have now been validating their methods and two intercomparison study has been carried out sofar with a number of distributed samples.
    The final step is to prepare suitable standard materials.After examination by the collaborators, the materials will be certified according to BCR-rules.
    Then they will be released as EU-standard materials.
