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.
