Abstract: The work programme 2013 for the European Union Reference Laboratory for Food Contact Materials was established during the June 2012 Plenary meeting in consensus with the Network of NRLs and DG SANCO. It included developments on testing for ceramics in support to the revisions currently discussed for the Directive on ceramics. It also included 1) a first-time proficiency testing (PT) as next phase to the 2012 validation of a method for the new simulant for dry foodstuffs 2) a first-time PT on fingerprinting as identification of the nature of plastics FCM materials, 3) a follow up on the PT 2012 on measurement of formaldehyde from imports melaware, 4) an exercise on calculation of surface areas in contact for kitchen utensils using different methods and 5) a workshop and evaluation of supporting documents for the establishment of compliance. It also initiated exploratory work on testing of kitchen paper and napkins as a non-regulated issue for primary aromatic amines (PAAs) and on strategies to develop multianalyte methods. In addition continuing work items included the development of a databank for substances regulated under the Regulation 10/2011 for plastics as well as the development of an inventory of methods of analysis.
