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.

Eurachem launches Education and Training needs survey
The Eurachem Education and Training Working Group (E&T WG) has initiated a survey of training providers and users to collect information on the state of education and training in metrology in analytical science in different member states. This will help the working group facilitate the dissemination and exchange of training materials among teaching and training institutions.Contributions are welcome from training providers and laboratories. The survey is web based and can be found on the new Eurachem Survey portal.
