In practice, under normal circumstances, reporting of results takes 2-3 working days from receipt of sample. This response time applies to samples to be reported as negative. However, we operate a normal maximum reporting period of 5 working days.
If the analysis finds no evidence of contamination the results will normally be reported as:
“None was found in the submitted sample(s) at the time of testing.”
However, if the analysis suggests the presence of contamination the results normally will be reported as:
“Screening analysis indicated the presence of <name(s)> in the submitted sample(s) at the time of testing. No confirmatory analysis was undertaken.”
Our current normal reporting levels are:
|Contaminant||Reporting level (mg/kg)||Contaminant risk level*|
