Full UK compliance will become mandatory by August 2022 for AOX legislation such as DIN ISO 9652, EPA 1650 for AOX in water and wastewater, and EPA 9020B for TOX in wastewater. This has been defined by both the English and devolved Environmental Agencies.
To support companies in achieving compliance, SciMed is pleased to announce its latest Adsorbable Organic Halogen (AOX) Knowledge Transfer Course (or KTC) which will take place on the 26th of January 2022.
This KTC will give all the relevant background and practical knowledge for laboratories looking to comply with this legislation.
The KTC will be delivered by SciMed and Analytik Jena AOX Applications experts. All aspects of AOX analysis including Theory, Calibration, Sample Preparation, Validation, Method Development and Routine Maintenance will be covered. A fully operational analyser will be used for the training to allow participants to get essential and beneficial “hands on” experience.
Lunch and training certificates will be provided to all attendees.
Whilst the current plan is to host this event IN-PERSON, on line attendance will be facilitated should COVID related restrictions make this necessary.
