NOTE: This version of the Eurachem/CITAC "Guide to Quality in Analytical Chemistry - An Aid to Accreditation" has been superseded by the Third Edition, approved in 2016. The third edition can be found here.


The aim of this guide is to provide laboratories with guidance on best practice for the analytical operations they carry out. The guidance covers both qualitative and quantitative analysis carried out on a routine or non-routine basis. A separate guide covers research and development work (Quality Assurance for Research and Development and Non-routine Analysis, 1998 ).
