Open call for tender – Interlaboratory study to validate test methods for algae

The European Commission (EC) and CEN have signed a contract (SA/CEN/2019/ENER/C2/452-2019/SI2.832375) under their Framework Partnership Agreement 2014. The project is titled: "Algae and algae products" and is to cover additional work not foreseen in Standardization Request M/547 as regards algae and algae-based products.


The objective of the project is to develop standardization deliverables under CEN/TC 454 'Algae and algae products', which was established at the beginning of 2017. This tender adds to 7 deliverables that are being developed in CEN/TC 454 working groups (WGs).


The work will be split into two phases. First the phase 1: interlaboratory trial. The second phase is called the interlaboratory study.


During phase 1, the drafts of seven standards that are being developed within CEN/TC 454 'Algae and algae products' are tested by a statistically sufficient amount of laboratories.


During phase 2, an interlaboratory study (ILS) is organized during which final versions of the seven draft standards are validated by, again, a statistically sufficient amount of laboratories.
