  3. 3. Cross-cutting issues: Ambiguity <ul><li>Consistency in application across Member States is important </li></ul><ul><li>Need to review and incorporate the Commission's Q&As </li></ul><ul><li>Recommend that the Q&As be kept live to promote consistent application across Member States </li></ul>
  4. 4. Cross-cutting issues: ISO 17025 <ul><li>Limited number of accredited labs </li></ul><ul><li>Use of equivalent “standards” </li></ul><ul><li>Problem of dropping a Tier </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Use of default emission factors </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Introduces a known bias </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Conflict with principle of accuracy </li></ul></ul>
