AOAC is seeking volunteer subject matter experts to serve on a newly established working group to review the applicability of current standard method performance requirements for heavy metals in foods in response to the lower regulatory limits worldwide. The project is proposed to operate at an accelerated pace to meet a timeline specified by stakeholders. The working group will revise and/or develop one or more SMPRs® (as deemed necessary by WG experts) to reflect global changes in regulatory limits for heavy metals in defined matrices based on priorities established by the project’s Advisory Panel.

If you are interested in joining the working group, please submit an application or contact Allison Baker. The deadline to apply is January 31, 2023.
