After two years of online meetings, the participants of the annual QS laboratory managers' meeting for residue monitoring finally met again in presence. More than 120 laboratory managers from 13 countries (including Benelux, Italy, Spain, Greece, Serbia, Croatia, Poland, Turkey) accepted QS's invitation to Berlin on 7 February 2023.

In addition to QS specific topics such as the discussion of the results and analytical anomalies from the QS laboratory performance assessments 2022, external speakers were invited again this year to give interesting presentations. The laboratory managers used the breaks in particular for face-to-face contact with each other and with the speakers. We included the breaks as a main focus of the event and are pleased that they were used so intensively and extensively. This is something we have been missing for the last two years, Claudia Rotter, responsible at QS for the laboratories involved in residue monitoring, summarises the event.

The speakers were Claudia Rotter (QS), who presented the results of the past laboratory performance assessments, and Dr Günther Kempe (consultant for residue analysis of pesticides and veterinary drugs), who gave an analytical classification of the results and presented current legal developments in residue analysis. In his presentation, Dr Manol Roussev (expert in residue analysis) outlined the requirements and associated challenges facing the multi-method in routine analysis, and Monika Richter (BASF SE) gave an overview of the steps which an active substance has to undergo before a maximum residue level can be established.
