Kimchi cabbage, a type of cabbage and a main ingredient of kimchi, a fermented Asian dish, is widely cultivated and the most popular Brassica vegetable in the Asia-Pacific region. It is a good source of nutrients but it is prone to be contaminated with pesticides. Many countries set food safety regulations limiting the amount of pesticide residues in agricultural products. With increasing international trade of food and agricultural products, traceable measurements of pesticide residues in agricultural products have become one of the essential requirements for ensuring food safety.
Reference values provided by KRISS for p,p'-DDE and α-endosulfan in the test sample were used as the assigned values for evaluating measurement results of participants. The relevant Calibration and Measurement Capabilities(CMCs) of KRISS are registered in the Key Comparison Data Base (KCDB) of the Comité International des Poids et Mesures(CIPM, International Committee for Weights and Measures) Mutual Recognition Arrangement(MRA).
