Compliance with legal requirements: definition of limits, sampling and measurement uncertainty


Compliance with legal requirements: definition of limits, sampling and measurement uncertainty

In many cases compositional requirements for foodstuffs (e.g. limits for the fat, protein, dry matter, or water content) are established by legislation. Adequate compliance testing is possible only if limits are clearly defined, taking measurement and sampling uncertainty into consideration. Furthermore, decisions on compliance must be based on samples which reflect the composition of the quantity to be evaluated.
