UPDATED Agenda_IUPAC-CITAC_webinar (PDF), v.16Oct2020
As originally planned, the International Workshop is to be organized in conjunction with ISRANALYTICA Conference and Exhibition and will include discussions on the following topics:
– use of measurement uncertainty as a parameter of quality of test results;
– evaluation of correlation of test results of concentrations of different components as another quality parameter of the results;
– influence of mass balance on correlation of the test results, measurement uncertainty and, therefore, on probabilities of false decisions on conformity of the material or object;
– ways of minimization of measurement uncertainty and quality improvement.
The workshop will be a platform for dissemination of the “IUPAC/CITAC Guide for evaluation of risks of conformity assessment of a multicomponent material or object due to measurement uncertainty” (IUPAC project 2018-004-1-500) and for presentation of the development of the more recent project 2019-012-1-500 “Influence of mass balance constraint on uncertainty of test results of a substance or materials and risks in its conformity assessment“.
The workshop is postponed to January 2022, in Tel Aviv, Israel.
