Does anyone know of labs in the UK that can do accredited testing for Ethylene oxide residue on herbs, spices and teas?

Labs that are based in the UK but send the samples overseas are not what I am looking for, the testing needs to be done in the UK. This is due to ongoing courier/customs issues.


We've been trying to find accredited UK performed pesticide testing as well with very limited results.

I don't know of anyone that can offer this at present. I presume you've tried e.g. FERA, Campden, RSSL, and the big lab groups?
I did recall seeing a note about this in one of the Reading Food Law updates - as at last November there seemed to be very few options in the EU, with none in the UK: http://www.foodlaw.r.../news/20150.htm
