Codes and prices of laboratory tests carried out as part of the inspections by CAFIA laboratories

This document sets out the codes for testing carried out by the laboratories of the Czech Agriculture and Food Inspection Authority, with the intention of clearly setting out a prices which controlled persons must pay for tests, as set out in Decree No. 541/2002 Coll., and amended by Decree No. 469/2005 Coll.
The codes V, N, E and S for established non-standard codes ("V"), normalized (codes "N") physical-chemical analyses and analyses that are conducted according to the procedures laid down by Regulations (EEC/EC; codes "E") and sensory analyses (codes "S") are included in this document. The amount of reimbursement for analyses not described in Annexes 1 to 3 to Decree No. 541/2002 Coll., as amended by Decree No. 469/2005 Coll. (i.e. newly introduced standardised and non-standardised physical-chemical analyses, etc.) were determined in accordance with § 2, paragraph 3 of this Decree, according to the formula set out in Annex 4 to Regulation No. 541/2002 Coll., as amended by Decree No. 469/2005 Coll.

1. Definition of Terms

1.1. Basic Terms

The amount of reimbursement for analysis in a Czech Agriculture and Food Inspection Authority laboratory is set out in the Tariff reimbursement for analyses defined in Decree No. 541/2002 Coll., as amended.

1.2. Testing codes

Testing codes are parts of the testing protocol issued by the CAFIA laboratory on the basis of the results of the tests carried out on agricultural products, foodstuffs or raw materials designated for their production, or tobacco products.

1.3. Codes "V"

Are the codes for non-standardised (validated) physical-chemical analyses. The range of non-standardised physical-chemical analyses carried out in CAFIA laboratories is listed in Annex No. 1.

1.4. Codes "F"

Are the codes for physical-chemical analyses, which are carried out according to procedures set out in EEC/EU regulations, or other European documents (e.g. OIV documents). The range of physical-chemical analyses carried out in CAFIA laboratories which are carried out in accordance with EEC/EU regulations, or other European documents are listed in Annex No. 2.

1.5. Codes "N“

Are the codes for standardised physical-chemical analyses. The range of standardised physical-chemical analyses carried out in CAFIA laboratories are listed in Annex No. 3.

1.6. Codes "S“

Are the codes for sensory analyses. The range of sensory analyses carried out in CAFIA laboratories are listed in Annex No. 4.

2. Calculation formula to count the cost of testing

Cost in CZK = a + x*b
when:  a = use of materials in CZK (concerns direct material costs)
            x = number of hours of work
            b = cost of 1 hour of work, which includes:
  • salary and operational costs according to level of difficulty (according to level of employee´s qualifications)
  • cost of energy according to consumption of equipment - see “Table No. 1“

N.B.
The level of difficulty is applied to the cost of 1 hour of work.
(This only concerns the working time of the employee.)               

I a – the lowest qualification class
I b – the lowest qualification class, including. energy intensity 
II a – medium qualification class
II b - medium qualification class, incl. energy intensity
III a – the highest qualification class
III b – the highest qualification class incl. energy intensity
Technical equipment:
0 - without the use of devices (e.g., sensory tests)
1 - low intensity (e.g., weight, homogeniser, pressure gauge, distillation equipment, etc.)
2 - medium intensity (e.g., extraction apparatus, conductivity meter, etc.)
3 - high intensity (e.g., fluorescence detector, isocratic pump, gas chromatograph, etc.)
