The NF VALIDATION mark
Due to the growing need for quick, convenient and reliable analyses, a large number of commercial kits are used on the microbiological analysis market (food industry, water, etc.). However, the users of these kits need guarantees as to their performance.
This is why AFNOR Certification introduced a validation system for these commercial methods. This system applies a very rigorous certification procedure to ensure that the results obtained with commercial kits are equivalent to the results obtained with standardised methods.
The objectives of the Symposium were to give the best information on the NF VALIDATION Scheme, a european certification of rapid analytical methods which complies with requirements of regulation (EC) 2073/2005 on microbiological criteria for foodstuffs.
A successfull european event
