Session’s Title:
Method Validation and Method Performance Criteria of Chemical Analysis

There has been great effort by a number of international bodies to define which method performance characteristics need to be determined, how to measure these parameters, and what to be the criteria for acceptable performance. Here we present one scientific session on the Method Validation and Method Performance Criteria of Chemical Analysis. It provides a platform for scientists from the international food safety related committee, governmental agencies, industries to display and discuss the method validation guidelines and the method performance evaluation. The session primarily focuses on the international method validation guidelines including method performance criteria, especially for high resolution mass spectrometry, as those from Codex, US FDA, EU 2002/657/EC, SANTE/11945/2015 or other agencies or industries for analysis of antibiotics, pesticides and/or trace elements in food. It also provides practical examples of which laboratories implement the guidelines to validate the methods that are used in regulatory monitoring programs. Overall, the sessions will be of interest to scientists and managers of analytical laboratories.
