Dominik Wildanger of the German institute HLNUG presented, last February at the WG2 meeting in Barcelona, the results of the German proficiency tests on odour sampling. Mr Wildanger showed there how it is done and what the results were of 2015 and 2016. We have already spoken about this very interesting Proficiency Test (PT) that considers the influence of sampling
Proficiency Tests (PT) are organised to check the ability of laboratories to deliver accurate testing results to their customers. Since 2015, the Hessian Agency for the Environment and Geology (HLNUG) organizes regular PT on stack odour sampling exclusively for German labs. The PT of this year will be next months of September and Octoberand for the very first time it is open to labs from other countries. At this stage, at least six odour labs from outside Germany will participate to this PT as well.
