TT No. 291: Certified Reference Materials from Palm Oil Products

According to Palm Oil Refiners Association Malaysia (PORAM), the properties of RBD palm oil products produced from the palm oil refineries and shipped therefrom are to adhere strictly to the stipulated values in the specifications. Therefore, in order to assure the trueness and reliability of the tests performed to meet these specifications, a comparison of the measurement results must be made with the certified value of a certified reference material (CRM) of the same type. However, the limited amount of palm oil CRMs available in the market prevents this from being practiced.
