Delegate Feedback (November 2019)

  • It was explained very well and gave a good detailed overview of how to get started with measurement of uncertainty.
  • Very good balance and flow between tutors in terms of covering each of their topics in detail, explanations, hints and tips on how to combine testing.
  • Both tutors successful, some difficult concepts covered clearly, and questions addressed well to support this.
  • I learnt a lot from this course compared to what I knew entering this morning, format, material and layout were very good.

Benefits of attending

This course provides practical guidance on how to apply the new requirements for ISO19036: Microbiology of the food chain – Estimation of measurement uncertainty for quantitative determinations

Campden BRI has been heavily involved with the development of this new standard and will structure the content on the requirements in the DIS  (Draft International Standard) or FDIS if published, and any future changes.
We expect this standard to be required by accreditation bodies to fulfil ISO 17025:2017

This course is designed for senior microbiologists, senior laboratory personnel, and technical managers wishing to under-pin and further their knowledge of measurement uncertainty.
