Abstract

Ethyl carbamate (EC) is a toxic substance which can occur naturally in significant amounts in stone fruit spirits and other spirit drinks. Commission recommendation (EU) 2016/22 states that a target level of 1 mg L-1 EC should be achieved in stone fruit spirits and stone fruit marc spirits. In order to control this target level, a GC-MS method for the determination of EC in spirits was successfully validated in an interlaboratory study to finally become a European standard.
