The procedures included (1) use of existing certifiedreference materials (CRMs) to validate analytical methods, (2) generatingreference values in selected CRMs where certified results were not available,(3) preparing a new total diet CRM, (4) adopting the concept of a CentralReference Laboratory (CRL) to harmonize QA efforts, and finally, (5) analysisof 10% of all samples in the project by both the CRL and participant laboratoriesto assess performance of the methods used.
