IAG-Proficiency Test for Animal Proteins in Feed

Dear Colleagues,
Dear Laboratory Managers,

On behalf of the board of the IAG Section Feed Microscopy we are pleased to announce the organisation of the 2023 proficiency test on animal proteins detection in feed by light microscopy.

Annual IAG proficiency tests are important for all official control laboratories and private companies laboratories seeking for performance assessment of the detection of animal proteins in feedingstuffs in particular with regards to the ISO/CEN 17025 requirements.
For years these tests were successively organised by Danish (DPD) and Dutch (WFSR) institutions. Last year a new collaboration was proposed ; from now on this IAG proficiency program will be organised by the Walloon Agricultural Research Centre (CRA-W).
On this page you will find the official invitation letter including some practical information as well as an application form to return by the 23rd January 2023 the latest to the organiser at the following address :
For practical reasons the number of participants will be limited to a maximum of 60, therefore if your laboratory is willing to join this proficiency test we invite you to react promptly to this opportunity.
We are looking forward to your future participation.
Yours Truly,
Dr. Pascal Veys

Dear members of the IAG section Feed Microscopy,
It is with great pleasure sending you the best wishes for 2022!

Please read this letter from Dr. Geneviève Frick

Dear members of the IAG section Feed Microscopy,

WFSR has decided to organise one PT this year, the one on animal proteins. This is due to the situation of my retirement this year. Future strategies for PT organisation have still to be worked out. Please find attached the invitation letter and the application form. The time schedule is tight, so the closing date of Friday February 11th is strict.

The IAG proficiency test for animal proteins is in particular important for official control labs and private labs which are not part of the NRL network or national networks for proficiency testing of the detection methods for animal proteins. The current list of e-mail addresses for sending invitations is certainly incomplete, and I will invite you to distribute this invitation in your own network of contacts .

Looking forward to receive your application.


As there was the first ONLINE-election of the IAG-Board this year during the annual IAG-Meeting some important changes occured:

First: We have to thank Renate Krull-Wöhrmann for her excellent expertise on the regulatory affairs. She leaves the board because of new challenges!

Second: We welcome to new members of the board: Julia Dietz from SGS – Germany and Manuela Zadravec from the Croation Veterinary Institute

Third: We thank Genny Frick for being our president for another 4 years, Roland Weiss for overtaking the part of the website manager, Jerome Vancutsem for overtaking the Regulatory Affairs and last but not least Leo van Raamsdonk who will still be our scientific officer for one more year until he will retire in 2022.

As there is a lot of work still waiting to be done the IAG audience wishes the new IAG-Board “Good Luck!”
