The EuroResidue conferences are organised to cover all aspects concerning residues of veterinary drugs such as analytical techniques, pharmacological and toxicological studies, registration and regulation, and others. Special emphasis is laid upon recent developments with respect to detection and determination of drug residues in any matrix. Euroresidue brings together experts and interested persons from various scientific disciplines to enable them to meet each other to discuss developments and problems in the field of residue analysis and to exchange ideas. EuroResidue conferences were held in 1990, 1993, 1996, 2000, 2004, 2008, 2012 and 2016.

Preliminary scientific outline

In addition to the general topics related to the scope of the conference, EuroResidue IX will feature a number of specific topics. Contributions for oral or poster presentation are called for on:

* Advances in screening technology

* Advances in sample preparation

* Confirmation technologies

* Omics

* The environment and residues

* Quality Assurance, Risk Management and Risk analysis

* Analytical criteria and validation


Posters, presentations and photos displayed on this website are still of the Euroresidue conference in 2016. As soon as possible they will be "refreshed" after the conference in 2022.

New date EuroResidue IV; 23th-25th May 2022

It will not have escaped your attention that a worldwide crisis is affecting all aspects of human life and businesses. (Supra)national and regional measures has limited people to meet each other.

In the light of the unpredictable events, the board of the EuroResidue Conferences Foundation has decided to postpone the ERIX event that was planned to start May 18th, 2020 and was postponed to May 2021. The EuroResidue IX Conference is now planned for 23-25 May 2022.

New congress venue

Due to the new date we had to look for a new congress venue. The new venue will be "hotel de Ruwenberg" in Sint Michielsgestel. 

We hope genuinely that you will attend the meeting in 2022. We keep your reservation intact. Costs and prices will not go up for the postponed event. If you do not agree with this continuation of your registration, please contact us. Otherwise, we will confirm your reservation for the event in 2022 on the short term.

Stay in good health.

On behalf of the organisers, we hope sincerely to meet you by 23-25 May 2022.

Online Course
Validation of Chemical Methods
for Residue Analysis

Date               7 Mar - 13 Apr 2022

Location      Online

Duration      6 weeks | 32 hours


Analytical laboratories that perform chemical analysis on veterinary drugs, toxins, pesticides and contaminants need to demonstrate that their methods are fit for purpose. Multiple validation approaches exist (e.g. EU 2021/808, SANTE/12682/2019, CODEX CAC/GL 71-2009) and it is often unclear how to implement these and how to come to a practical set-up of experiments. In this online course you will learn step by step to draft a validation plan for your own validation case.
