Abstract: This paper present the results of an interlaboratory study on methyl-mercury (MeHg) in sediment carried out by a group of European laboratories in the frame of a project managed by the Standards, Measurements and Testing Programme (formerly BCR). The aim of this exercise was to evaluate the performance of current methods used for MeHg determination in sediment in order to possibly improve the state of the art prior to the certification of a reference material. The paper describes the organization of the interlaboratory study, the preparation of the sediment material used, the techniques evaluated and the results obtained by the partecipating laboratories. The outcome of the collaborative project showed that certification could be contemplated, providing that some analytical techniques are optimised.
