XXIII. SCIENTIFIC AND PROFESSIONAL CONFERENCE
WATER AND PUBLIC WATER SUPPLY
with the central theme:
Water sampling is an initial step in obtaining reliable results that later serve for a variety of purposes, such as assessing surface and groundwater status to assess safety of water for human
consumption. Improper sampling, conservation, preservation, and handling of water samples may result in wrong final results, and, ultimately, misalignments that may have far-reaching consequences.
The water sampling area is regulated by a series of standards, and, besides the sampling techniques, the requirements for quality assurance and quality control of environmental water sampling and handling are dealt with. With the new issue of the HRN EN ISO/IEC 17025: 2017 standard, it is possible to accredit the laboratories only for sampling, and, at the same time, the sampling is the area where only rare interlaboratory comparative trials are available. It is important to look at the data and experiences gained by the sampling of all types of water for different types of analysis, as well as experience and knowledge in estimating uncertainty and the implementation of interlaboratory comparisons in the field of sampling.
Although the central theme of this year’s conference is dedicated to sampling, the Conference is open, like all previous years, to all other topics of interest to experts and scientists dealing with water and public water supply.
We are looking forward to seeing you in Poreč!
