Welcome to Eurachem, a network of organisations in Europe having the objective of establishing a system for the international traceability of chemical measurements and the promotion of good quality practices. It provides a forum for the discussion of common problems and for developing an informed and considered approach to both technical and policy issues. It provides a focus for analytical chemistry and quality related issues in Europe.
Check the Task Views to find all the Eurachem resources for particular topics:
Eurachem Traceability leaflet now in Spanish
The Eurachem Information Leaflet "Traceability for analytical measurement" is now available for download in Spanish. Find out more here.
New Eurachem Information Leaflet issued
The Eurachem Information Leaflet entitled "How can proficiency testing help my laboratory?" has now been translated into a further 10 languages: all 11 language versions be downloaded here.
Other information leaflets can be found under 'Information leaflets'.
Terminology guide now in three languages
The Eurachem guide to terminology: "Terminology in Analytical Measurement: Introduction to VIM 3" is, thanks to the efforts of the German and Italian Eurachem contributors, now available in two further languages.
Reading list for metrology in chemistry published
The Eurachem Education and Training Working Group has prepared a reading list containing references to documents relating to all aspects of metrology in chemistry, with a particular focus on quality assurance. While not intended to be a comprehensive list of all publications relating to quality in analytical measurement, the list aims to provide references to a selection of websites, standards, guides and books which will hopefully be of use to all those involved with chemical analysis, including laboratory staff, students, lecturers and trainers.
The reading list can be accessed here, both as a pdf version and as a series of web pages.
Eurachem/EQALM PT workshop - 2nd Circular available
The second circular for the forthcoming Eurachem/EQALM International Workshop on Proficiency Testing in Analytical Chemistry, Microbiology and Laboratory Medicine is now available on this site and on the workshop website. Early registration discounts end on 15 may 2014.
