Welcome to the Summer issue of the BMTA Newsletter. Once again contributions to the newsletter have been influenced by Covid-19, and we have articles in this issue that focus on the future of remote assessment, PPE and forged or fake certifications. 

We also take a look at World Accreditation Day - food safety, which promotes the value of accreditation, accredited conformity assessment and standards.

In addition, we investigate how to identify microplastic and nanoplastic pollutants in our environment. Both accumulate and persist in the environment. Scientists have found them in soil, water and the air, and studies show they have been found in food. As a result, concern over their effect on human health is growing.
