    Abstract

    This is the annual report of the Dutch National Reference Laboratory (NRL) for Genetically Modified Food and Feed (RIKILT - Institue of Food Safety). The report gives an overview of the NRL activities carried out in 2010. In 2010 RIKILT participated in one ring trial for inter laboratory validation of an event-specific GMO detection method organised by the European Union Reference Laboratory for Genetically Modified Food and Feed (EURL-GMFF). Both Rikilt and the Routine Field Laboratory of the new Dutch Food and Consumer Product Safety Authority (nVWA) participated with good results in several proficiency tests. Also Rikilt paticipated in EURL.NRL workshops and the Working Groups Unauthorised GMO's. In 2010 four times confirmatory analysis were carried out for the nVWA on rice samples potentially containing Kefeng rice and/or Bt63 rice. All nVWA sample results were confirmed by Rikilt. Rikilt has a flexible scope accreditation for real time PCR GMO analysis in raw materials, food and feed.
