Within the quality control environment there is quite a number of issues that have not been addressed adequately yet. These issues were partly discussed during the ECA Foundation Board Meeting in January 2010 - and the Board therefore decided to establish a new ECA Working Group on Analytical Quality Control.
It is the group's intention to generate more awareness for these issues. Therefore, a whole set of goals and objectives was defined:
As one of the first projects the new working group will concentrate on developing a harmonised SOP on managing analytical deviations within the laboratory including OOS, OOE and OOT results. To manage this project the steering committee is looking for ECA members interested in getting actively involved to set up a review team.
If you are interested in getting involved in the ECA review team please send your name, company and e-Mail adresss to firstname.lastname@example.org. All ECA Members are entitled to join the team.
