A webinar offering an insight into new EU 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 has been broadcasted live, free of charge, on March 1st, 2022, from 9:00 to 12:00 CET.

The presentations were given by key experts from 3 European Reference Laboratories (EURLs) for residues of veterinary medicines and contaminants in food of animal origin, according to the defined programme. The video as well as the pdf files are freely available. Many questions were posted by participants, to which detailed answers from the experts can be found below. Considering the audience and the live comments, the session was a great success.
