Follow on Laboratory Capacity Building Workshops

Date: TBD
Location: TBD

An Expert Working Group prioritized and sequenced the needs identified through the assessment and FY11 regional workshop resulting in the following three year plan:

  • FY12: Analytical Methods/Validation/Fitness for Purpose
  • FY13: Sampling
  • FY14: Quality Assurance/Proficiency

Three sub-regional in-laboratory train-the-trainer events will be held to address Analytical Methods/Validation/Fitness for Purpose in APEC pesticide residue laboratories in the following regions within the next year:

  • Chile, Peru, Mexico (to be held in Peru in mid-June)
  • Vietnam, Philippines, PNG, and Indonesia (to be held Vietnam in mid July)
  • Malaysia, Thailand, Russia, and China (to be held in Malaysia in early July

These trainings will be in-laboratory hands-on efforts, including a lecture element, and based on a train-the-trainer curriculum. Depending upon individual host economy conditions, the location of the 3 sub-regional trainings will be either national laboratories or universities.

Upon completion of the sub-regional trainings, participants will be linked with PTIN experts who will be on hand to address any issues or problems that arise as the participants train their colleagues/implement the information discussed during the trainings.

A regional PTIN workshop will be held as a follow-up to the sub-regional trainings to discuss issues, problems, and solutions identified.
