The Priority Organic Pollutants (POPs) are organic compounds identified among those presenting a significant risk to, or via the aquatic environment.These compounds were highlighted at EU level and are listed in Annex X to the Water Framework Directive (WFD) 2000/60/EC.The priority list is reviewed every 4 years by the EU via a review of the Environmental Quality Standards Directive (EQSD) 2008/105/EC in which environmental quality standards are set.
RPS’ trace organics laboratory focuses on low-level residues in environmental samples and routinely tests for POPs down to extremely low levels.
As well as testing for the current list RPS have an active R&D programme continually striving to improve and enhance existing analytical methodology as well as developing techniques for the analysis of the new compounds that are added to the list.
In addition to providing analytical services, RPS can provide:
Of these, 44 are organic and are collectively known as the POPs.
