Abstract Reference materials represent an invaluable tool for analytical quality control. Certified Reference Materials (CRMs) are used for the validation of methods, whereas various types of (uncertified) Reference Materials (RMs) are used for routine quality control (establishment of control charts) and interlaboratory testing (e.g., proficiency testing). This paper provides background information on the production and use of environmental RMs and describes recent CRMs produced by the BCR (European Commission) for quality assurance in environmental analysis.

The Chemical Section of OMH1,2 embarked on the preparation of a series of wheat samples as Certified Reference Materials (CRMs) in 1992. The certification processes were carried out according to the recommendations of ISO. Since then we have developed a series of flour samples as well. The investigations of the long-term stability and the application of wheat and flour CRMs are continuous. Wheat is one of the most widely grown crops in Hungary and it is one of the major determining factors of the economy. Its uniform and objective qualification is of great importance. There are well-equipped laboratories available with sufficient experience but, as the proficiency testing regularly showed, certified samples need to be used to achieve exact and uniform measuring results.

Lead is widely knows as one of the harmful pollutants for humans. Contaminated fishery built by lead may endanger the consumption body. Therefore, contamination monitoring for the fishery products is necessary to be conducted. To ensure the validity of data, Oyster Tissue 1566b certified reference material was used as Internal Quality Control. Marlin fish powder and certified reference materials were analyzed with the same method, personnel, duration or time, equipment and environmental conditions. As the results, it was found that the lead contained in CRM was 0.306 mg.kg-1 with 11.9 % rsd, which is within range of lead content in  the certificate. The method was applied for Marlin Fish. Lead content obtained in this study (1.821 mg.kg-1 with 11.06 % rsd) can be reported with high level of confidence.Keywords: Lead, Certified Reference Materials, Marlin fish
