Abstract: In 2006 JRC-IRMM started CO2 isotope analyses on air sample collected by aircraft, the project CARIBIC. This application-CO2 isotope analyses for environmental monitoring requires upmost data quality. Only a few laboratories worldwide take part in the challenge to reach data quality targets required. Thereafter publishing details on the method, instruments and tests is mandatory and that was requested by the customer institute. In 2007 instruments for CO2 extraction followed by isotope analysis were installed at IRMM and critically tested, parameters optimised. Manuscript describes the results of tests, calibration approach, error budget as well as potential problems. Recommendations concerning operation of a similar system are given.
