NordVal - an independent third-party, reviewing alternative methods

An accepted NordVal International validation assures test kits users and producers that an independent assessment of a kit’s performance characteristics is found to be in compliance with its claims, demonstrating equal performance with its reference method.

NordVal International offers:

  • A user-friendly validation protocol
  • Scientific confirmation policies
  • Specified acceptance criteria
  • Independent and rapid approval procedures
  • Guidance in the validation process

In March 2007, the secretariat of NordVal was taken over by NMKL, the Nordic Committee on Food Analysis. 

Hilde Skår Norli, Norway, is the chair of NordVal International.
