The odour level: the key parameter to distinguish odorants abatement from odour abatement

le .

Intensity vs. Odour Concentration

   The terminological distinction between the quantities of stimulus and sensory effect is very important and leaves no room for misinterpretation of olfactometric results. The introduction of the odour level as a link between olfactory stimuli and effects will help to reach this objective.

WG2 lunch break in Barcelona   The 12th meeting of the working group 2 dealing with dynamic olfactometry just took place in Barcelona the 14th and 15th of February and again many decisions were taken that will affect the day by day work of the lab managers and other olfactometric facilities. 

 Mr Van Harreveld welcomed all participants to Barcelona and opened the meeting. The convenor remarked that CEN has implemented a new rule regarding the maximum duration of the preliminary stage of a project: 3 years. If a working group exceeds that time limit the project will automatically be abandoned. This rule will become effective in 2017 and has no retroactive effects.

le .

ILC2017   The company Olfasense has announced the Interlaboratory Comparison for Olfactometry (ILC) based on EN 13725:2003 for 2017. Organizers invite laboratories from different countries to participate in this ILC2017 tests.

   This proficiency test allows laboratories to demonstrate compliance with its performance requirements and compare the performance of their laboratory internationally. The participation in Proficiency Testing (PT) for laboratories accredited to ISO17025 is not facultative. In addition, this can allow to demostrate compliance with the performance requirements and compare the performance of your lab.
