SETAC is a not-for-profit, global professional organization comprised of some 6,000 individual members and institutions from academia, business and government. Since 1979, the Society has provided a forum where scientists, managers and other professionals exchange information and ideas on the study, analysis and solution of environmental problems, the management and regulation of natural resources, research and development, and environmental education.

SETAC's founding principles are:

  • Multidisciplinary approaches to solving environmental problems
  • Tripartite balance among academia, business and government
  • Science-based objectivity

SETAC is implementing this mission worldwide.

Course: SC06

Room: TBA

Title: Dioxins & PCBs: Data Interpretation, Review & Validation

Instructors: Yves Tondeur, Jerry Hart

Course objectives are to provide regulators, inspectors, permit writers, enforcement staff, risk-assessors, toxicologists, process engineers, researchers, and project managers with the necessary tools to evaluate the quality and reliability of the data received from laboratories. Through the detailed perusal of a typical data package, the attendee will learn basic concepts, critical and key aspects of the ID-MS analytical methods, the sample analysis process, data review and interpretation, and quality assurance/quality control validation. In essence, the course will elevate your future level of confidence when navigating through a CLP-type and comprehensive data package. For instance, you will learn how detection limits and analyte concentrations are determined, how measurement of uncertainty is conducted and how to realistically assess laboratory's performance so that the data produced is fit for purpose; i.e., you will be in a superior position to prepare, review and accept future QA Project Plans.
