12th Meeting of the CEN Working Group 2 in Barcelona

on .

WG2 lunch break in Barcelona   The 12th meeting of the working group 2 dealing with dynamic olfactometry just took place in Barcelona the 14th and 15th of February and again many decisions were taken that will affect the day by day work of the lab managers and other olfactometric facilities. 

 Mr Van Harreveld welcomed all participants to Barcelona and opened the meeting. The convenor remarked that CEN has implemented a new rule regarding the maximum duration of the preliminary stage of a project: 3 years. If a working group exceeds that time limit the project will automatically be abandoned. This rule will become effective in 2017 and has no retroactive effects.

The EN 13725 Interlaboratory Comparison ILC2017 is here!

ILC2017   The company Olfasense has announced the Interlaboratory Comparison for Olfactometry (ILC) based on EN 13725:2003 for 2017. Organizers invite laboratories from different countries to participate in this ILC2017 tests.

   This proficiency test allows laboratories to demonstrate compliance with its performance requirements and compare the performance of their laboratory internationally. The participation in Proficiency Testing (PT) for laboratories accredited to ISO17025 is not facultative. In addition, this can allow to demostrate compliance with the performance requirements and compare the performance of your lab.

How key limitations can determine the use of e-noses for environmental monitoring.

the odour talks guillot

   In October 2016 we organized the first Odour Talks. The idea was to select key experts in several fields of odour management and to let them present a work of interest on the subject. To make this experience available to the rest of the world, we did a webcast online of the Talks. Some people subscribed to the webcast sessions and they could do online questions to the speakers. A few months after this experience, we have decided to make the videos available to everyone, so here you have the first Odour Talk by Mr. Jean-Michel Guillot.

   Mr. Guillot is professor at the École de Mines d’Alès in France. He has published over 50 papers on international journals and conference proceedings and he is involved in almost any initiative related with the management of odours in Europe. To date he is a member of the CEN Working Group 41 that is dealing with instrumental odour monitoring (aka e-noses). We had the pleasure of listening to what he has to say about e-noses in the Odour Talks.
